Romeo and Juliet [Luomiou yu Zhuliye]

This solo performance centers around the balcony scene. Huang Hsiang-Lian, who specializes in male roles, plays both Romeo and Juliet, with quick costume change behind a screen on stage. The eclectic style, mixing classical poetry and colloquialism, quasi-Victorian-style costumes and body movement from xiqu traditions, creates a comic atmosphere despite the tragic theme.
