“The Artificial Woman” is a collaborative music/theater/dance piece, by composer Steve Gunderson and poet Amy Gerstler, exploring artistic, romantic and power relationships between artists Oskar Kokoschka and Alma Mahler and its reflection in today’s society. When Alma broke off the suffocating affair, Oskar eventually commissioned an artist to make a life size Alma doll, and in this tale the doll becomes the truth teller of the piece, ready to pounce on the roles that society dictates women are supposed to play, and turn them on their heads.
The workshop of THE ARTIFICIAL WOMAN is made possible by a generous grant from the San Diego Foundation Creative Catalyst Fellowship.
No more reservations for this presentations will be taken, as we are fully reserved.
