"Kiss Kiss Julie is an ensemble-generated performance that jumps off from August Strindberg's 1888 play Miss Julie to explore the subsequent decades' impact on sex, class and gender. We push our design-driven theater paradigm even further into a realm of visual art installation and interactive exhibit, as we explore this magical piece of New Orleans ground: former indigo plantation, bed and breakfast, restaurant, and reggae dance club.
Created by the ensemble and their collaborators. Performed by Rebecca Mwase, Lisa Shattuck, Ashley Sparks, and Nick Slie. Directed by Kathy Randels, text by Lisa D'Amour, sound by Sean LaRocca, design by Jeff Becker, costumes by Ellen Macomber, lighting by Hannah Adams, with assistant direction by Bonnie Gabel.
Kiss Kiss Julie was made possible by the generous support of the Joan Mitchell Center and Joan Mitchell Foundation; by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts; by a grant from the Louisiana Division of the Arts, Office of Cultural Development, Department of Culture, Recreation and Tourism, in cooperation with the Louisiana State Arts Council, as administered by the Arts Council of New Orleans; and by generous in-kind support from Whole Foods Market."
