STAND IN SISTERS
Atlanta, GA – Twinhead Theatre and Performance Group announces its
second collaboration with writer Gayle Austin entitled, Stand In Sisters. This piece
is a feminist conceptual performance with music and visuals that are a collage
of texts both aural and visual, live and mediated, verbal and non-verbal. It is a
result of a process of collaboration among writer, director, actors, artists and
technicians. Stand In Sisters will concern the dyads of women: sisters, twins and
doubles and takes its shape from the likes of Baby Jane, sister Blanch and the
denizens of Mulholland Drive and Persona.
"Last fall Twinhead Theatre did such a good job re-mounting my "Resisting
the Birthmark" from fifteen years earlier, about the relation between a woman
and a man, that I wanted to come full circle and collaborate with them in
composing a companion piece, about the relations among pairs of women,”
says the writer, Gayle Austin.
This collaborative “work-in-progress” will ask both participant and
audience member: Who can stand in for a sister? Who is the “other” woman in
the drama of women?”
Stand In Sisters, by Dr. Gayle Austin, directed by Deisha Oliver plays at The
Eyedrum Artspace, which is located at 290 MLK Jr, Drive, Suite 8, Atlanta GA
30312, July 28th-30th at 8:30 PM. All seating is general and tickets are available at
the door for $6.00. 50% of the proceeds go to support Eyedrum programming.
The cast includes: Diana Brown, Caroline Caspar, Krista Carothers, Neil Huber,
Amanda Quinones, Cherry DelRosario and the Twinhead Theatre ensemble with
special musical accompaniment under the direction of Norm Ficke.
