About this show

WINNER OF THE 2009 ETHYL EICHELBERGER AWARD Vaginal Davis Is Speaking From the Diaphragm is a performance piece that re-examines the hey day of 1970s American daytime television chat and variety programs. Taking the format of legendary talk shows like The Mike Douglas Show and Dinah!, which starred lesbian icon Dinah Shore, Ms. Davis isn't interested in assimilating into the mainstream entertainment complex, but instead wishes to disect a kind of TV staple and reconfigure it by presenting an array of live and Skype guests from the various worlds of literature, dance, theatre, film and art she has intersected in her over 30 year career as a performance and live artist, writer and cultural raconteur. With guest hosts, Downtown treasure Carmelita Tropicana, and Jennifer Miller the famed bearded lady of Circus Amok expect ten days of the unexpected, the unusual and the sublime.
