Sara Juli's Burnt-Out Wife

  • SPACE 508 Congress Street Portland (map)



co-presented by SPACE and PORTLAND OVATIONS

A world premiere of Maine based artist Sara Juli’s latest feminist solo, Burnt­-Out Wife. 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 full length, multimedia work defies genre and will spark community conversations while exploring the detritus and decay of one woman’s marriage and blowing up the institution with humor, reflection, and a complete re-imagining.

Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife is a co-commission by SPACE (ME), Portland Ovations (ME), Dixon Place (NYC) and American Dance Festival (NC) with additional funding from the Maine Arts Commission and New England Foundation for the Arts New England Dance Fund.

Funded in part by the New England States Touring Program of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts Regional Touring Program and the six New England state arts agencies.
