“It’s nerve is undeniable.”
-The Village Voice

“Sara Juli gives of herself.”
-The New York Times

“A gutsier look at self worth…”
– Gia Kourlas, The New York Times (on The Money Conversation)

“A light of the downtown dance and theatre scene”
-The New Yorker

Death is scary, awkward, fearsome and inevitable-we have no choice but to face our ultimate fate. Following the success of her internationally acclaimed show, ‘The Money Conversation’, Juli asks her audience to address the one thing we all can’t escape.

With her unique arsenal of movement, spoken word, and song Sara confronts the universal demon. Let’s talk about death. No, really. Let’s face it, deal with it, think about it, laugh about it and really talk about it. In other words, let’s not change the subject. In a society that focuses all its attention on staying young, where graveyards are far removed and called the more innocuous cemeteries and “resting places,” the question is not how do we deal with death – but do we deal with death at all?

The Money Conversation

The Money Conversation

The Money Conversation

Sara Juli is determined to let go of her “money issues” by literally letting go of her life savings and putting $5000 into the hands of audience members every night. While some question her sanity and others her ability to go through with it, all that she has will be up for grabs.

In this high-stakes dance and live art experiment directed by Chris Ajemian, Juli fuses text, movement and cold hard cash to send up and surmount problems of net-worth and self-worth in an unexpectedly rewarding way.

As seen in The New Yorker:
“…a provocative stunt: over the course of six performances, she is giving away her entire savings (five thousand dollars) to members of the audience. Since Juli also provides a way for people to give the money back, if they wish, or to donate more, each show becomes a moral experiment. There’s some movement, some humor, and a lot of audience participation, but a basic idea predominates: a compression of the everyday economic gamble made by all aspiring artists in the big, cruel city.”
