Pulsive Party—MTC Up the Alley
Absolutely outrageous and amazing are the two most prevalent descriptors in my mind about this show. From the moment the stage lights come on, I was laughing hysterically as two cast members dressed as giant dancing and singing vulvas take the stage.
The primary themes of this piece are acceptance of self and (if you possess the correct anatomy) a love and respect for your body, particularly between the legs, the ignorance that so many possess about the female body, and somehow the importance of exercise.
The costumes alone were enough to make everything hilarious, but the action followed each vulva as they worked for a vagina service help phone line and educated the audience while expressing the importance of embracing sexuality. There is incredibly energetic dancing, ukuleles, absurd sound effects and hysterically inappropriate material done somehow in an exceedingly charming way. It was great!!!
Lip Service—MTC Up the Alley
“Perfectly executed” and “Unforgettable” – Apt 613
“Top-notch comic skills” – The Visitorium
“The audience was HOWLING” – Ottawa Tonight
Lip Service is a performance of two larger-than-life vulvas navigating their relationships to service, self-acceptance, and sexual empowerment within a hilarious world of doing, knowing, and being it all. Infused with clown, contemporary dance, pop music, and more puns than you’ll know what to do with, expect to be laughing uncontrollably and deeply moved by this portrayal of the female experience.
