Fantastic Flying Fish Dance Company presents an all new production of the world's greatest love story, Romeo and Juliet, told through a mix of classical and contemporary dance choreographed to Prokofiev's evocative score by FFFDC artistic director Mark Hawkins and resident choreographer David Gouldie.

The production, directed by Robert Whitehead and designed by Sarah Roberts, fuses a variety of dance styles and theatrical designs to create a timeless piece of dance theatre which promises to inspire and bewitch. Award-winning Durban fashion designers Colleen Eitzen and Amanda Laird-Cherry of the Durban Designer Emporium have created the costumes designs for the Capulets and Montagues respectively. Lighting designs is by Michael Broderick and fight sequences are staged by Donald Jolley.
