ABOUT“Burnt-Out Wife isn’t a dance show. It’s an everything show performed by one woman who knows how to use movement to get her point across.”—DanceInforma
Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife is presented virtually by ADF, Dixon Place, Portland Ovations, and SPACE, the four co-commissioners of the work.
Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife takes on topics such as intimacy, loneliness, monogamy, and other marital taboos. Juli employs her comedic text-driven dance style to explore the decay and detritus of marriage with equal parts wit and vulnerability. Taking place in a Pepto-Bismol pink bathroom, this evening length dance-theater-comedy will spark intimate conversations while blowing up the institution with humor, reflection, and a complete re-imagining.
Created and performed by Sara Juli with dramaturgy by Michelle Mola, set design by Pamela Moulton, costumes by Carol Farrell, sound design by Ryan MacDonald, and lighting design by Justin Moriarty. sarajuli.com
