Strindberg’s tragedy is reimagined for the multimedia age as theatrical performance and live filming techniques converge, lending fresh cinematic perspective to a classic story.

Aristocratic Julie and Jean, a servant in her household, are entangled in a sexually charged game. But as their dangerous pursuit of one another escalates, Strindberg’s play finds a new focus. For it is Jean’s fiancée, a cook of few words, who is given a voice in this moving adaptation that uses real-time film and sound effects to track the life-changing events through Kristin’s eyes.
Recognised for her virtuosic blend of theatre and technology, Katie Mitchell co-directs with regular collaborator Leo Warner in their Schaubühne and Barbican debuts.
