Leslie Rogers on performance art – now on Artblog Radio

Libby and Roberta speak with performance artist and puppeteer Leslie Rogers in this 12-minute podcast interview.

Leslie Rogers emotes for artblog radio

This episode sponsored by Fleisher Art Memorial.

Leslie Rogers sews like a dream and makes costumes she wears in performances that are about gender roles and sometimes are gender bending.  She talks about her role in PuppeTyranny, doing puppet shows in her mouth, in which a male collaborator inserts a variety of tiny objects into her mouth and she interacts with them (chewing, spitting out, etc).  Exhibitionism, voyeurism and creepy are all on the table for Leslie, who, by the way,  has a great laugh and wonderful sense of humor.
