the guardian imagines what historical figures might look like today. my personal favourite is shakespeare, reincarnated as a shoreditch hipster.

but can you imagine how’d he’d sound a loft party? 
"I’m going to subvert the whole, like, narrative ideal by telling you upfront that these two, like, teenagers are going to fall in love and die, and then do it. So there’s no more hiding in the words. Stark, yeah? And then, I think I’ll hide a sonnet in their big scene together, right? It’ll be subversive, because only, you know, people who are up on sonnets will get it…..what? No, she’s thirteen—a little edgy but that’s art, man. Art.”

i am loving hipster shakespeare A++

This explains so much. Hipster Shakespeare drank too many experimental microbrews one night:"Will, we need this bit done, buddy. We’ve got rehearsal in ten minutes.""Shit, I dunno. Uh. Exit.""Just… "Exit"?""Exit, pursued by a bear.""Will, come on.""I think I left my LUNGS in that bucket, Robbie, okay? Exit, pursued by a bear. It’s surrealism. Man versus wild. Whatever. Get me a Gatorade and a shit ton of Advil, and maybe I can work out what I’m going to do with the statue."

they’re on a fucking beach, too.

There’s something very arousing about having an immediate response from people, right then and there. Theater really is much more of an actor’s medium because you’re in control of the editing, of what the audience is going to see. You’re the one making those choices. There isn’t somebody else up there cutting the moment together for you.

Bereczki Zoltán as Mercutio.

I just saw the captions and I knew that I had to reblog this.

what the hell is going on in this gifset because I kind of want it.

Welcome to what is ‘Romeo es Julia’, the Hungarian adaptation of Romeo et Juliette that takes place in a dystopian future and contains an epileptic Tybalt, fire, a very very very bisexual Mercutio, fire, leather, chain mail, fire, a fucking terrifying double suicide that Romeo and Juliet manage to pull off that is hella crazy, fire, blood, and fire.

DID I MENTION FIRE BECAUSE HUNGARIAN THEATRE ALWAYS HAS SOME SHIT ON FIRE I SWEAR.

 

Act I

Act II

Available with English subtitles.

Also, Mercutio is definitely bisexual in this and it’s my favourite thing ever.

I can’t even… 

GIVE IT MEEEE

People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any
Romeo: I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing
Juliet: I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself
--
Romeo: We should kiss right now at this party
Juliet: No that is a super dumb idea
Romeo: *kisses her anyway*
Juliet: That was dumb of you
--
Romeo: We should get married right now
Juliet: We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?
Romeo: Like tomorrow?
Juliet: Sure, fine.
--
Juliet: We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.
Romeo: Right.
Romeo: It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.
--
Juliet: Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.
Romeo: *immediately kills himself*
Juliet: For fucks sake.

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

So yeah I know that I saw James III: The True Mirror and Enemy of the People before I saw this show but I desperately need to write about it right now and maybe I will come back to this post and add more or scrap it and write a new one but I just need to do this one right now.

First of all, I…

Saw an absolutely beautiful show this weekend, highly recommend it to literally everyone.
