About Rose: You Are Who You Eat  

Rose: You Are Who You Eat is a co-production between Woolly Mammoth and CulturalDC.  This production embarks on a rolling world premiere journey alongside FringeArts and La MaMa ETC. Born from a commission by Works & Process at the Guggenheim, Rose unveils a true narrative of gender feasting, set to the rhythm of music. 

Once upon a vine, John Jarboe’s aunt unraveled a startling revelation: John not only shared the womb with a twin sister but also consumed her. “You ate her. That’s why you are the way you are,” she declared. This revelation proved to be a mouthful for John to digest! 

In this musical homage to the consumed twin, named Rose, John extends an invitation to join in a feast of gender exploration. Through song, storytelling, and a smorgasbord of wordplay, audiences are welcomed into a transformative journey through the complexities of identity.
