Set in Colombia on Midsummer Eve, Miss Julia and her servant Juan have an encounter that will change their lives forever. As Juan tries to rise from the depths of his servile life, Miss Julia wants to escape the bonds that tie her to a meaningless upper-class existence.

The action of this 19th-century European play is shifted to Colombia to explore the power relationship between the United States and Latin America. Audiences are invited to witness a slice of Colombia, complete with live traditional folk music, salsa and rum. This bi-lingual production, performed in English and Spanish, is a clash of cultures, a dance of death combining heightened physicality and rich naturalistic text.
