Liabilities: Part 1 & 2

This tape is based on four years of performance work that I have done with an alternate persona, "Anne Russell". The character is autobiographical in nature and originated from a name that my parents decided against when I was born. The video leads to the creation of two characters. There is "Anne", whose father is killed in a freak car accident, leaving her mother free to name her. There is "Monique", whose father survives and finally chooses her name. What is important in these narratives is that "truth" and "fiction" are not seen as opposing ideas, but as essential parts of each person's autobiography.
