Ms Julie 

Adapted from August Strindberg's play 

Extract performed as part of Resolution Festival at The Place in London, 18th February 2020

Collide Theatre re-imagines Strindberg’s 19th-century play and presents a contemporary pas-de-deux of two doomed lovers. In this dance-theatre piece, featuring an original music composition, two bodies collide socially and sexually. Two people break under the pressure of their restrictive society and the fire that burns inside them is drained away forever. This is the story of a one night-stand between an upper-class young woman and her servant. It is a story about privilege and power, sexual desire and shame.

An interplay between silence and cries.

An interplay between passionate sex and hateful bruising. 

An erotic dance between two trapped souls.
