Pair of identical twins needed for unique live art project. TWINS – how do I know I am me…

TWINS – how do I know I am me… is an exciting performance project commissioned by the Bluecoat. Cologne based duo Angie Hiesl and Roland Kaiser (directors, choreographers, performance and visual artists who work as Angie Hiesl Produktion) will be working with pairs of identical twins from Liverpool and from its German sister city. the Bluecoat are still seeking one or two local pairs to participate. Please contact Richard Kingdom, Performance Programmer at the Bluecoat (on 0151 702 7788 or email

TWINS performances will take place at A Foundation, Greenland Street, on Friday 3 July 2009 at 8.00pm, and on Saturday 4 July at 3.00pm and 9.00pm. Tickets available from the Bluecoat.

Bryan Biggs, Artistic Director at the Bluecoat, saw the work in Germany and was keen to bring it to Liverpool. He says, “An Angie Hiesl Produktion is always visually arresting, poetic and seductive, yet thought-provoking at the same time. In TWINS the relationship between pairs of identical twins is explored through dramatic tableaux, illusion and intriguing situations, and plays on our fascination with the phenomenon of identical twins. The work also resonates with wider, topical themes, such as genetics, human cloning and the identity of the individual in an increasingly homogenised society. It focuses the audience on human relationships and everyday interactions, elevating these into something extraordinary.”

Tickets are £7 / £5 concessions and available from Tickets and Information at the Bluecoat: 0151 702 5324
All three performances take place at A Foundation, 67 Greenland Street, Liverpool L1 0BY
