What would you do if a performer gave you $500 and said you could keep it? In Sara Juli's The Money Conversation, she does just that. This one-woman show is all about money - what it means, how much is enough and whether or not you would take it from a stranger.

New York artist Juli, confronts her own troubled relationship with money by giving it all away. Each performance she brings her entire life savings to the theatre - in bundles of genuine US legal tender.

'This money is very important to me. However, tonight, we'll find out how important my money is to you...' Sara Juli

Sara Juli's The Money Conversation uses performance and audience interaction to explore the way money permeates our thoughts and behaviour, how it infiltrates our value systems and how it influences our culture in obvious and not-so-obvious ways. The money is important to Juli, it's her safety net, yet nevertheless she wants to find out how important it is to others.

Her first full-length work, Sara Juli's The Money Conversation premiered to full houses at New York City performance venue P.S. 122 in February 2006 and was later showcased at the Noorderzon Festival in Groningen, Holland.

Based in New York City, Sara Juli is a dancer, choreographer, arts manager and curator.. Her mission is to explore her own personal struggles through the medium of performance. Juli graduated from New York's Skidmore College with a degree in Dance and Anthropology and is currently the Director of Institutional Giving at Dance Theater Workshop in New York City. Her performance of Five of my Forty Million Parts at the American Dance Festival was selected as one of "The Best of Dance 2003" by the Independent Weekly.
