The Confessions of Roee Rosen begins with the artist’s announcement that he is about to die. He disavows a career replete with lies, scandals, and fake identities. However, his confessions are delivered by three surrogates – all foreign female workers residing in Israel – who deliver the monologues in Hebrew, a language they do not speak. Their monologues are based on Rosen’s life but are simultaneously plausible as statements a foreign worker might make. Tackling such charged themes as the exploitative representation of the Holocaust or scatological fantasies, the confessions constitute a peculiar speech act in which the speakers ignore what they say.
