Heidi Rose Performance Artist in Mirror Image and Twin

Feb 17

Heidi Rose Performance Artist in Mirror Image and Twin 

Lauren K. Woods Theatre - 4:30 PM

Mirror Image: Two cousins are born five months apart to identical twin mothers. Shaped by their mothers’ careers as 1950s pop singers, these women both complement and contradict one another as their lives unfold. Mirror Image reveals a life and relationship that now exist only in dreams, memories… and on stage. Twin: Identical twin girls each have a personality that is in some ways too big for their bodies. Too big to control. Too big to contain. They have lived their whole lives off-balance. Would they have been better proportioned had the egg not split? This performance is presented as a work in progress.

is a 60 to 90 minute interactive talk, audience members will be challenged to rethink the concepts of what it means to be an “activist,” “artist,” and “feminist.” The talk is framed with readings from Aphra’s upcoming memoir, “UN/MASKED, My Secret Identity Revealed” (Skyhorse Publications, October 2016.) A lively Q and A will follow the talk.

The highly credentialed and charismatic United Nations journalist Alexandra King will moderate conversations with art critics, collectors, curators, technology producers, and artists. Artists from NJMoCA’s “Breaking News” multi-media exhibition planned for April 2016 which will address, engage people in dialogue, and foster understanding about political, cultural and social issues saturating today’s 24-7 cable news cycle, such as race relations, energy consumption, scandals, the gun culture, immigration, and female identity and sexuality.
