Interpretive dancer gets down with her bad self at city council meeting

PORTLAND, Maine (KTRK) -- Residents and council members at a Maine city council meeting were treated to an eccentric performance that's raising eyebrows on social media.

Artist Sara Juli bounded around the Portland city council chamber during a recent meeting, doing somersaults and flailing around until she eventually jumped into Robert Bartels' lap. Bartels, a new appointee to the Zoning Board of Appeals, then watched as Juli pretended to vomit on his lap.

Juli ended the performance by repeating the phrase "I'm so sorry" to a round of applause.

Sehe is the latest performer invited to the meeting as part of mayor's Arts in the Chamber series.
