In Miss Julie, by August Strindberg, the aristocratic Julie gets involved with the servant Jean in the manor house’s kitchen, uninhibited by the presence of Cristina, his bride. After consummating the sexual act, however, the roles of Julie and Jean are reversed and he, the strongest, convinces her to steal her father’s money. In the film perspective of this 1887 classic, forged by Katie Mitchell with the Schaubühne Theater, the viewpoint of the narrative alters, giving voice to Cristina. Mitchell and co-director Leo Warner, her regular collaborator, reinvented the classic drama with a multimedia staging in which theatrical performance, sound effects and live footage converge.
