Ms Julie (In Development)

A dance-theatre piece adapted from August Strindberg's classic play

The Place - Kings Cross [ As part of Resolution Festival]


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.
