Dr Tallulah presents: New Frontiers in Vaginal Consciousness (SomaSpace, PDX)

  • SomaSpace (an urban retreat) 4050 NE Broadway Street Portland, Oregon 97232 (map)

3 shows! Jan 27, 28, 29th @8pm!


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 led by Dr Tallulah that 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/audience participation 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, possibly cry.

PRESS: A One Sentence Project Description

While Dr Tallulah wields her cosmic workshop on Vaginal Consciousness (VAGCON™), we, her audience, lay witness to her humorous and spiraling descent into the exploration of her sexuality, which then ultimately reveals her HEART’S  truest desires.
