Mixing traditional theater with modern technology, an innovative version of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” performed by Syrian teenagers offered a unique twist on the classic love story, with Skype at its center.
Although the war physically separated them, a group of young Syrian actors didn’t let it stand in their way. Four teenagers at a recovery center in Amman, Jordan, performed alongside actors living under siege in Homs, Syria. The action unfolded at the same time in each city, where a screen that faced the stage connected the actors and audiences via Skype!
The play inspired all who were involved and allowed the war-torn community to use art and technology as creative outlets. Learn moreabout this unique stage experience here.
