Racine Art Museum
To Host Performance Typist
To celebrate the art of storytelling, the Racine Art Museum welcomes Anja Notanja Sieger, founder of "La Prosette," to the museum on Friday, July 18 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. Sieger is a one-woman typewriter performance writing service that composes letters or "Prosettes" on behalf of her audience. Visitors to the museum are invited to make all manner of requests from poetry, love letters, and insult letters to Letters of Recommendation, short stories, or letters from their beloved pet. Museumgoers may name their own price when commissioning Prosettes. Anja will offer little extras especially for RAM members. In addition, Sieger will represent RAM during Third Friday in Downtown Racine on Monument Square, 5:00 - 8:00 pm.
Anja Notanja Sieger, La Prosette
"La Prosette" has been featured on the front page of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, USA Today Online, MSN Hotmail News and Yahoo News. Writing letters requires Anja to pretend for the duration of the composition that she is "Not-Anja," but the client. Her live stories have won Milwaukee area slams held by Ex Fabula and the Pfister Hotel. Sieger is currently an artist-in-resident at In Tandem Theatre and the Pfister hotel's resident narrator.
