News from Home

1985/87

performance

News from Home was performed nationally at museums, underground clubs, colleges, and universities for two years. A comedic cabaret performance, News was based upon twenty years of correspondence from Susan Mogul’s mother. (“Saw Barnett Newman’s paintings and got some good ideas for Kim’s room.”). Looking just like mom, Mogul modeled her mother’s cocktail dresses and commented on her letters, as the struggle to individuate was explored in the context of the mother/daughter bond.
