Sara Juli’s “Burnt-Out Wife” Comes to Dixon Place


Fans of the comedic dance performer Sara Juli are looking forward to her latest piece, “Burnt-Out Wife,” which opens this weekend at Dixon Place. After taking on motherhood in her 2015 work “Tense Vagina,” her new solo dance-theater piece offers a comedic autobiographical reflection on the challenges that are currently known as marriage. Juli is known for work that feels more like a comedy routine with dance interludes than a full-blown modern dance performance.

The piece is co-presented by the American Dance Festival and promises to “explore the decay and detritus of a once-promising marriage. Separation, sex deprivation, and lack of communication add up to wanting to run from the popular, yet impossible binding contract.”
