The Wandering Uterus Project is designed to redress the recent anti-uterus rhetoric that has entered the public sphere and to give voice to the uterus-owners who face a forced orthosectomy at the hands of legislators across the country. The Wandering Uterus Project is a multimedia performance piece that reconsiders and reconfigures the long history of male philosophers and politicians and how they define and dictate where uteruses can and cannot wander. The Wandering Uterus Project encourages participation through social media and during live performances by those with (and possibly without) uteruses.

Dr. Womb and Dr. Tomb Make Their Debut

Dr. Womb and Dr. Tomb took center stage to heal women and the nation last night at Stage Center Theatre on the Northeastern Illinois University campus. The 50-minute biting satire had the audience laughing, thinking, and participating. Thanks to our Kickstarter donors, we were able to offer our treatments and cures with flash and flare. Following the show, the audience and the good doctors had a rousing discussion about how the show came about (look out for a blog posting on that very subject later this week!).

Victoria Pettersen Lantz (Dr. Womb)      Angela Sweigart-Gallagher (Dr. Tomb)

Victoria teaches in both the English and Theatre departments at Sam Houston State University in Texas.

Angela is an Assistant Professor of Theatre at Northeastern Illinois University.  She teaches a range of courses from Introduction to Theatre, Acting, and Political Theatre.

Together, they co-created The Wandering Uterus Project and the theatre piece Dr. Womb & Dr. Tomb's Wondrous Wandering Ward of Cures, Clarifications, Correctives, & Creams for all that Ails & Avails the Utilitarian and Utterly Unreliable Uterus.

Stacie Hauenstein (Drs.' Assistant)
Since coming to Chicago Stacie has worked with companies such as Right Brain Project, The State, Strangeloop, Point of Contention, Dream Theatre, and Theatre-Hikes. In May of 2008, she graduated from the 2-year conservatory program at Act One Studios, where she could be seen in productions such as American Devine, Laramie Project, and Cherrywood. She also has a BA in theatre from UW-Madison.

Dr. Womb encourages Dr. Tomb to look into her heart and offer the audience a generous discount on their cures and treatments.

Dr. Womb and Dr. Tomb administer the final treatment in the CURE-ALL Cure.

The good Drs.'s assistant readies herself to receive the soaking she requires.

Ready, set, spread your seed!

Here is a brief clip from the show...
