WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In rural Colombia on Midsummer's Eve, Miss Julia and her servant Juan have a forbidden encounter. As Juan tries to rise from his servile life, Miss Julia tries to escape the bonds of her meaningless upper-class existence. The resulting power play of love, lust, and class struggle becomes a dangerous battle that veers violently out of control. This bilingual adaptation of August Strindberg's Miss Julie, performed in English and Spanish, is a clash of cultures as well as a dance of death combining powerful physicality, naturalistic text, and live music. It makes Strindberg's text as relevant today as it was 100 years ago.
