Wagner College theater performance major Charlie Rudalavage ’23 invites you to the performance and exhibition of his senior honors thesis, “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall,” on Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4 p.m. in the Union Gallery.
Rudalavage’s performance-art piece and set combine personal recordings, poetry and mixed media, creating a moment of emotional truth.
“Everything in life is temporary,” he says, a truth reflected in the title of his performance.
“Mirror, Mirror on the Wall” explores the artist’s body, from the inside and out. All aspects of the performance piece reflect the artist’s experience with intimacy over a year’s time.
The set for “Mirror” consists of layered drawings, paintings of figures, and scanned pages of journal entries attached with various amounts of tape to gallery walls. Observers will take a journey with Rudavalage through poetry and interpretive dance to live accompaniment.
The performance, which will start at 4 p.m., will last about 30 minutes, Rudavalage says; material for the performance’s set will be on display for “a few hours.”
