In Read-in Cinema Emily Kocken creates a reading organism of twelve performers looking like her. This new circle of ‘look-a-likes’ read the script of the film Picnic at Hanging Rock, a famous cult movie from the seventies. In daily episodes Read-in Cinema tells the story of the disappearance of a group of schoolgirls during a picnic set in 1900. Masked as a murder mystery the story is a classic manifesto against the polarization of female and male identity. The strong image of thirteen ‘identical’ performers reading and breathing as one questions the nature of identity itself.
