My mother told me never to talk about money. Sara Juli's clearly did not. Next week, the New York performance artist will be London's Chelsea Theatre with The Money Conversation, her show in which she not only discusses cold, hard, cash with strangers, but gives it to them, too. The run is part of Chelsea's Sacred: US Radical season, which sees the venue hooking up with Brooklyn's PS122 space after 2009's successful collaboration with brut in Vienna.
