Showing of Juli's newest dance-theater comedy, Burnt-Out Wife
Kittery, Maine- On Friday, June 28th Falmouth-based dance-theater-comedic artist Sara Juli will present a showing of her newest feminist solo, Burnt-Out Wife at The Dance Hall in Kittery. Taking on topics such as monogamy, intimacy, loneliness, and other marital taboos, Juli employs her physical and comedic talents to explore autobiographical issues of importance to all women. This work includes movement, text, stand-up comedy, props, audience interaction and cake all while blowing-up the institution of marriage with humor, reflection and a total reimagining. The new work is funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.

Sara Juli has been creating and performing innovative dance-theater for nearly two decades. She has been fortunate to tour around the world including American Dance Festival, Performance Space New York, New York Live Arts, Bates Dance Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and many more. Sara was the 2017 Maine Fellow for the Performing Arts awarded by the Maine Arts Commission and also received New England Foundation for the Arts prestigious National Dance Project Touring grant for which she toured her solo, 'Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis', to ten cities in 2018.
