Breathing new life into a classic Miss Julie'

Written by Allen Adams
Midcoast Actor's Studio to tour Strindberg production

BELFAST/TENANTS HARBOR Classic works of theatre sometimes get a bad rap. Too many people immediately dismiss older works as inaccessible, despite the fact that so many of them are built around themes whose universality hasn't diminished in the years since they were first written and produced.

Take August Strindberg's 'Miss Julie,' for example. The play, written in 1888, was the subject of scandal in its day due to its frank depictions of sexuality and unflinching portrayal of class dichotomy subjects that still inspire discussion and debate to this very day.

Lisa Lebofsky is a fine artist based out of New York City. The exhibit will feature oil paintings on aluminum, a medium inspired by Lebofsky's background as a metalsmith. The exhibit, titled 'Sedna's Gaze' after the Inuit goddess of the sea, was inspired by Lebofsky's recent travel in arctic Greenland. In the summer of 2012, Lebofsky explored western Greenland for three weeks aboard Wanderbird, the expedition cruise vessel owned and operated by Belfast's Rick and Karen Miles, who also operate the Northern Lights Gallery. Lebofsky's work can be previewed on her website,
