The choreography of MacMillan's ballet "Romeo and Juliet" stages the expression of and resistance to patriarchal political and social power. In the Elizabethan period "dance" constituted a recurrent symbol of order and harmony in the imagery of the period's cultural production. The medium of the body and its dancing movements convey a gender-based image of social identity (in particular during the scene of the Capulet's ball) and can be used as a means for resistance to such power (Juliet's expression of her will).
