In rural Colombia on Midsummer 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 production, performed in English and Spanish, is a clash of cultures, a dance of death combining powerful physicality, naturalistic text and live music making Strindberg’s text as relevant today as it was 100 years ago.
This new bi-lingual adaptation by SITI Company’s J.Ed Araiza brings together 7 artists from 4 different countries, and is an international collaboration between renowned Colombian film and television actor Jhon Alex Toro, Australian theatre artist Tina Mitchell and Colombian actress Gina Jaimes. Music is by US violinist Helen Yee and percussionist Martin Vejarano, and is directed by Italian Stage Director Lorenzo Montanini.
