SWELL

SWELL was the production of a graphic novel and derivative performances from 2007-2012. The comic, Swell tells the story of Emmeline Grouse and her family in the midst of grief for Lucy, the sister and daughter of the family who has recently died.

In Dec 2010 she completed the book.

In Spring 2011 she printed a limited edition of 110 books with silk screened interior pages and a stone lithography cover-made possible by the Royal Academy of Art's Project Program in Stockholm.

Making performances of various kinds since 2007, Juliacks has been working with theatrical Director Kathleen Amshoff since 2008 on an immersive theatrical adaptation combining performance art, video and sound to tell the story of SWELL. This work premiered in New York as a headlining production for Culture Project's Women Center Stage Theater festival and afterward traveled to Winnipeg, Canada.
