About the show

Twin sisters discover they are clones and embark on an unexpected journey, confronting the notion of their own authenticity. Exploring ethnic ambiguity, race, genetics and eugenics, this duet uses original and found text, live cinematography, and contemporary music to explore the science of identity formation and who has the authority to define it.
