Lip Service

2018

Ever wonder what your vulva alter-ego might do if given the spotlight?

Lip Service features two larger-than-life vulvas navigating their relationship to service, self-acceptance and sexual empowerment within a hilarious world of competition and ‘doing it all’. As the obstacle course of endurance begins to take its toll, our vulva characters start to question their unwavering commitment to competing, and whether winning within a vicious system is really winning at all.

Lip Service tackles the complexities and contradictions of the empowerment of womxn in today’s society. It celebrates the strength and spirit of the vulva while animating how modern day patriarchy continues to pit vulva-owners against themselves, against their own bodies, and again one another. Through absurdist humour and sex positivity, it carves space for audience to laugh and cry at how much further we have to go.
