EDC On Tour (2012)
In 2012, EDC took R&J on a short tour in South Australia, with one special performance in Queensland.
EDC performs Natalie Weir’s R&J for one night only in Cleveland, Brisbane at Redland Performing Arts Centre before heading to Renmark, Noarlunga and Mt Gambier in South Australia. R&J tells three moving love stories inspired by the classic tale of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.

R&J turns the classic story on its head, cutting to the essence of what is real, human and inevitable. Love plays a major role in all our lives, but as Shakespeare knew too well, does not always guarantee a fairytale ending.
Set across three different eras, R&J reinforces the notion that love – no matter what age you are, or what age you are in – is eternal and its power everlasting.
With music composed by John Babbage and recorded by prolific music ensemble Topology, R&J celebrates contemporary performance at its most bold and powerful.
