What makes a human authentic? Is it their genome sequence? Their life experience? Twin sisters discover they are clones and embark on an unexpected journey, confronting their own authenticity. More…
Exploring ethnic ambiguity, race, and identity, as well as genomics and eugenics, this duet uses original and found text, live cinematography, and contemporary music to explore the science of identity formation and who has the authority to define it.
See it if you are into hi-tech sci-fi drama that deals with important themes in a somewhat confusing way. I got lost in the process.
Don't see it if want a linear play with well-drawn characters and themes. This is more of a techno drama in search of identities.
See it if You want to go to another dimension of theatre. Although you might not get it all, it's worth a try. Tour-de-force of choreographed acting
Don't see it if Uncharted territory... not your usual evening of theatre. Ingenious, enigmatic.
See it if you like multimedia and science fiction pieces, are interested in technology/cloning and thinking about the future
Don't see it if you want a straight-forward, easy to follow performance, you don't like a couple of actors playing a number of characters
See it if You like sci-fi or multi media shows dealing with futuristic ideas. Really great staging adds a lot to this thought provoking timely story.
Don't see it if If you don’t want to face some dark questions & quite possibly some very real possibilities of the near future concerning genetics/cloning.
See it if Clever mixed media show that asks a lot of interesting questions about identity. And a nice tight but full 70 min.
Don't see it if Small, dystopian themed shows don’t interest you. It’s a black box show but with video and lighting effects. Not your thing? Skip it.
See it if watching computer projections create a sci fi based cloning story sounds entertaining. Two actress, dancer, singers working w/ restrictions.
Don't see it if chanting puts you to sleep. A lot of this performance is sung in a limited range. The performance is closer to dance than theater.
See it if dreamlike, dance staging, with 2 very appealing actors, that uses media in fascinating ways would make you want to explore issue of cloning
Don't see it if 2 hander with twins [not really] with subtitles for foreign language sequences, using music & dance & exploring issues would drive u crazy
See it if you’re annoyed by ancestry.com/23me ads; understand how code is analogous to dna; have liked works at HERE, LaMama, other incubator clubs b4
Don't see it if you dislike any “experimental” trappings (sparse set, cascading ideas, twinning, random bursts of song) even if the concept is well-realized
See it if If you’re a science fiction fan you can still pass on this one, it didn’t have much of an SF feel at all
Don't see it if The writing and the piece overall did not come together to form an engaging narrative or a work of art. Spoken parts were the worst
See it if you like original material with a sc-fi slant. Origianl use of video intertwined.
Don't see it if don't want to sit thru something slow at times, a bit boring-not good for a short piece like this. I didn't think the songs added anything.
See it if you like dystopian, unsettling stories about identity (and how science might affect that); you like multimedia and technology in theater
Don't see it if you aren't interested in a science-fictional take on identity; if you like traditional theater productions
See it if you enjoy a thought-provoking two-woman show based on a biological future. Great dramatic visual and audio staging with synchronized acting.
Don't see it if you have no interest in a futuristic dystopic view of the world.
See it if You are interested in cloning and like video projections. Good staging and movement to go with detailed script and talented actors
Don't see it if You don’t like wordy dialogue and repetive actions with little emotional pay off
See it if you want a show very dependent on projections and with an easily understandable premise/message - or a show that's (thankfully) only 60 mins
Don't see it if you want any kind of nuance, you don't want weird singing and synchronised dancing that didn't add anything, you want any actual science.
