Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife is presented virtually by ADF, Dixon Place, Portland Ovations, and SPACE, the four co-commissioners of the work.
Sara Juli’s Burnt-Out Wife takes 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. Taking place in a Pepto-Bismol pink bathroom, 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.
Closed-captioning will be available.
Adult content and language. Not recommended for children.

As we’ve seen these past few months, dancers never stop dancing, no matter what the conditions, and neither will we! This summer, we want to help you build strength, resilience, adaptability, hybridity, and a chance to experience community. Join us in one of our online training courses to continue reimagining dance’s potential and your capacity for powerful, joyous movement.
In an effort to support local creativity and choreographers and to continue engaging audiences, ADF invited 20 North Carolina choreographers to create a 60-second video dance that will be featured during a week-long online festival beginning June 8, 2020.
We will release four videos a day for five days on the ADF website. When new videos go up, the ones posted the day before will be taken down. All videos will be reposted together over the weekend of June 13-14 and audiences will have the chance to vote for the most creative and engaging work.
The three videos with the highest number of votes will receive awards. First place is a $1,000 honorarium and 40 hours of studio time at ADF’s Scripps Studios. Second place is a $500 honorarium and 20 hours of studio time. Third place is a $250 honorarium and 10 hours of studio time. All winners will receive two tickets to a 2021 ADF performance and have their videos screened during the 2021 festival.
