Amazingly au courant on their take on identity politics, members of Tracy + the Plastics appear to be comfortable in their own skins and with each other as band mates. They are also happy sharing stage space with the public. Perhaps it is because Tracy, on vocal and keyboards, Nikki on bass, and Cola on drums are all the same person: lesbian feminist and video artist Wynne Greenwood. She plays Tracy on stage while interacting with her wigged and costumed alter egos projected on screen.
During Greenwoods performances, her low-fi art punk band explores notions of identity and communication with audience members, musing about where the state of radical feminism finds itself. Tonight at 7:00, the Moore Space is presenting "Room," the second in a series of collaborations between Tracy + the Plastics and sculptor Fawn Krieger, featuring a new performance and installation by the duo with a performance by the band at 10:00.
We are excited to continue with our year-long focus on performance and this is a project in which improvisation and chance can come into play, meshing music, performance, multimedia, and the audience in a highly experimental way, Silvia Karman Cubina, the Moores curator explains.
In Room, Greenwood and Krieger examine the in-between spaces of a dwelling as a metaphor for how ones relationship to a place shifts based on specific locations and the people who occupy it. Tracy + the Plastics also performs tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. and the exhibit will run through November 1. Tickets cost ten dollars and seating is limited.
