Dr. Tallulah is a fiery Shamanic Healer, Sexual Activist, Vision Quest Guide, Intuitive, Zen Cosmetologist, Motivational Speaker, Cognitive Revolutionary, Dyslexia Advocate, Om Coach, Vaginal Consciousness (VAGCON) Pioneer and recent transplant from Ireland to the Pacific Northwest. Imagine a metaphysical cross between Archie Bunker, Dr Ruth, Carol Burnett, Shirley Valentine, Edith Bouvier Beale, and Maria Bamford on steroids with a wee bit of Viagra and you're closer to understanding who Dr Tallulah is.
VAGCON is a workshop/performance that will be part of Fertile Ground Festival this January and led by Dr Tallulah. It integrates group thrusting, fake orgasmic breathing, 3rd eye rubbing, traumatic story telling (with a twist!) and consumption of powerful jungle medicine. We utilize Qi-Gong Gi-Long foam rolling movement techniques, laughter-based therapy, and reversed Gestaltian methods to emphasize the phenomenality of both client (Dr Tallulah) and therapist (Audience) to safely cultivate attunement, freedom, and reconnect with our VAGCON. This is the work! Anyone interested in becoming more connected to the VAGCON is welcome - beginners, cismales, wounded healers, laymen, seasoned practitioners. No vagina is necessary to tap into the fold!
This original story taps into the zeitgeist of a New Age baby boomer generation and walks the line between satire and the performer's (Nesbitt's) own vulnerability in her quest for intimacy. It's a combination of pratfall/seriousness and uses pathos in her descent into the exploration of her sexuality that reveals her heart's truest desire. It's poignant, raw, zany, hilarious, grotesque, absurd, and brilliant. You'll laugh, sigh, and possibly cry.
NOTE: The seating options provided at SomaSpace will include regular chairs, back-jack folding seats on the floor, pillows, and blankets. Shoes off at door is recommended to get cozy!
The original FG description of this show noted that there would be 'audience participation' please note that that has changed and there is very little to no audience participation in this show. Thanks!
