The Strand Theatre's New Century Series presents

Sara Juli's Naughty


This evening-length multi-disciplnary performance explores the impacts of trauma on the brain stemming from sexual assualt as a child. Interweaving regressed thinking with a cruel inner voice, coupled with finding the humor in the tragic, the work breaks down victimhood to ultimately reclaim the mind.


With live original music by Sorcha Cribben-Merrill, a striking visual design by Brooklyn-based Dirty Bandits and Justin Moriarty, costumes by Carol Farrell , Dramaturgy by Michelle Mola Fireman, and Sara Juli’s signature style of movement fused with text and comedy, “Naughty” is for the child who did nothing wrong.
