Sara Juli's Burnt-Out Wife

3S Artspace presents:
Sara Juli's Burnt-Out Wife
Friday, March 6
Doors 7pm / Show 8pm
$20 Member / $25 General Admission

Maine-based artist Sara Juli brings her latest feminist solo, Burnt­-Out Wife to 3S Artspace for two nights. Taking 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. 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. Promotional photo by Nick Pierce.

“An imaginative and brave show performed with fearless vulnerability by the warm, wild, and untamed Sara Juli.”
