Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis, by Sara Juli

  • Date: April 6, 2018
  • Time: 06:30 PM
  • Location: Wish Theater, Memorial Hall, Brunswick

Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis is about motherhood- its beauty, challenges, isolation, comedy and influence on the human experience. This hour-long evening-length solo uses humor, movement, sounds, songs, text and audience participation to reveal ┬ťall 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, tears, monotony, loneliness and dildos. The narrative is anchored in sharing the physical therapy Sara received at The Pelvic Floor Rehab Center of New England as she sheds light and humor on her treatment of post-childbirth urinary incontinence. Created and Performed by Sara Juli with set by Pamela Moulton, Costumes by Carol Farrell and lighting design, Justin Moriarty.

(The show runs 1 hour with no intermission and is not appropriate for children due to its strong language, subject matter) 

Ticket cost: Advance Tickets are free and can be reserved at Smith Union 207-725-3375. Tickets available at the door. 

The presentation of Tense Vagina: an actual diagnosis by Sara Juli was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Sponsored by: The Alice Cooper Morse Fund for the Performing Arts and the National Dance Program - NEFA.
