Romeo and Juliet: A New Vision

28 min documentary, produced, directed and filmed by Philippe Charluet, Stella Motion Pictures for STUDIO Arts channel (Foxtel Australia)

Filmed over a period of 9 months, this documentary follows the creation of a brand new ‘Romeo & Juliet’, choreographed by Graeme Murphy AO with his creative partner Janet Vernon AM for The Australian Ballet. We are privy to their intense rehearsal periods in Sydney and Melbourne, together with the design process with acclaimed fashion designer Akira Isogawa and artist/designer Gerard Manion – revealing the sheer hard work, imagination and joy in creating such a major new work. But at the end, it is up to The Australian Ballet’s Principal Artists, KEVIN JACKSON and MADELEINE EASTOE and their Romeo’s and Juliet’s interpretation of the tragic love affair.
