This mock audition for the Romeo & Juliet balcony scene explores how our deeply ingrained unconscious biases affect the decisions we make. Which of our varied casting options will you view as the most appropriate pair of star-crossed lovers? And why?

All Freestyle Labs begin with an exhibition performance and conclude with a vibrant Town Hall conversation with the artists and audience.
