Summary/Abstract: The text is a detailed review of the critically-acclaimed and successful theatre performance „Miss Julie” (directed and performed by Anna Pettersson), presented at the Intima Teater in Sweden. The production has been shown in Bulgaria in 2012 within the frameworks of Bulgaria’s two biggest international festivals – International Theatre Festival „Vaиna Summer” and „World Theatre in Sofia”. In this original staging of the classical modern play by August Strindberg, A. Pettersson plays all the roles and thus puts under question the ideas of power and authority in the text. She also employs video and live screening. Her scenic treatment of the text is a very good example of what the eminent French theoreti- cian Patrice Pavis has termed „post- miseenscene” and has described as a typical trend for the theatre practices after the 1960s and connects it with the overcoming of the so-called “director’s theatre” of modernity. The sheer quality of Pettersson’s vir- tuoso acting goes beyond the traditional postmodern strategies of irony and deconstruction and opens up itself for the unresolved mysteries and riddles of the play.
