Today we announced the winning fifth grade class for the Disney’s Environmentality Challenge–a Sacramento-area school which did a project on restoring the American River. Watch these kids’ excitement after learning they’ve won a trip to Disneyland for their year-long environmental project efforts and tell me if you don’t get misty too!
Come join me this weekend as I unveil ‘Uterine Vinegar & Other Stories,’ a series of humorous performance vignettes that confront the medical industry’s prejudices about mature women and their bodies. In the stories, a pair of sibling protagonists battle gynecologists, surgeons, self-help books, and feminist health centers,as they attempt to regain control of their reproductive organs. Although the subject matter is serious, the sisters’ decidedly offbeat approach to their medical problems is delivered with a healthy dose of sarcasm and macabre imagination. Bottles of uterine vinegar will, of course, be available for purchase at a modest price.
This STUDIO includes some of my favorite performers, dancers and troublemakers, so it will be well worth the trip downtown to see these folks do their thing. Hope you can make it…and please excuse any duplications – it just proves that fabulous people have fabulous friends in common.
