About the show

This world premiere interactive theatrical experience incorporates live neuroscientific monitoring and recording that explores both the deep embedding and malleability of female identity. More…

"The Female Role Model Project" features four diverse female-identified performers of various ethnicities, ages, and sexual identities, who portray a series of well-known, iconic women including Marilyn Monroe, Michelle Obama, Melania Trump, Mulan and Kim Kardashian. Together, these four actresses are one of four components of a unique ensemble modality that is equal parts performer, scientist, technician and audience member.

Clever, Thought-provoking, Ambitious, Excruciating, Funny

Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Disappointing

See it if you like participatory presentations with high tech and energetic actors sharing their real-life experiences to bring about new perspectives

Don't see it if you are upset by a high tech show that doesn't always come through: hard-to-hear interpretations and audience voices in mic, lighting, etc.

Ambitious, Clever, Thought-provoking

See it if Three Legged Dog continues its exploration of visual tech with this well-intentioned gender experiment featuring four women & some audience.

Don't see it if Like watching an essay-rich oral college thesis in real time. Monologues. Might be asked to put on a headset. A demonstration without drama.

Ambitious, Experimental, Thought-provoking

See it if you like exploring unconventional theatrical formats and audience participation.

Don't see it if you expect the science component to be in coherence with art. The brain activity visualization is cool but mostly serves as a backdrop.
