Tense Vagina : An Actual Diagnosis
Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis is about motherhood–its beauty, challenges, isolation, comedy and influence on the human experience. This evening-length solo, created and performed by recent NYC transplant Sara Juli, uses humor, movement, sounds, songs, text and audience participation to reveal “all that is awesome and all that sucks” when it comes to being a mother. Tense Vagina focuses on the seldom-discussed and taboo aspects of motherhood, such as loss of bladder control, libido, tears, monotony, loneliness and dildos. With an original set, Lighting Design by Justin Moriarty and Costume Design by Carol Farrell.
