Performa 09, New York
  • This event has passed.

New York New York is one of ten new commissioned works to be debuted on the occasion of Performa 09. New York New York will take the form of two evenings of live improvised performance involving two nearly identical casts composed out of four pairs of twins split into two groups of four actors each. With New York New York, Breitz moves the probing of sameness and difference that has been central to her video-based work (most recently in Factum, a series of double-portraits of twins) into the space of live performance, bringing her interest in what she has called ‘the scripted life’ together with an on- going reflection on the fragile condition of individuality.
