Burnt-Out Wife explores the decay and detritus of marriage. Separation, sex deprivation, and lack of communication add up to wanting to run from the popular, yet impossible binding contract. Using her comedic text-driven dance style, Sara Juli blows up marriage for a total reimagining. World Premiere co-commissioned by SPACE Gallery (ME), Portland Ovations (ME), Dixon Place (NYC), and American Dance Festival (NC) with set design by Pamela Moulton, costumes by Carol Farrell, dramaturgy by Michelle Mola, sound design by Ryan MacDonald, and lighting design by Justin Moriarty. For mature audiences only.
