CULTUREMART 2017: Assembled Identity Purva Bedi, Kristin Marting and Mariana Newhard
About the show
What makes a human authentic? Is it their genome sequence? Their DNA profile? Their life experience? Exploring ethnic ambiguity, race and identity, this duet uses original and found text, live cinematography, and contemporary music to explore the science of identity, including genomics, genetics, eugenics, and cloning, all of which impact our culture.
Assembled Identity received developmental support as part of the 2017 Artist Residency Program of The Drama League of New York (Gabriel Stelian-Shanks, Executive Artistic Director; Travis LeMont Ballenger, Associate Producer; Sherri Eden Barber, Program Director). The Drama League Artist Residency Program is funded in part by the Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust and the Howard Gilman Foundation. The project also received support from The Puffin Foundation.
