Description
A site-specific play where threads of childhood tales, popular stories, collective memory intertwine to question the gender identity. The scenography juxtaposes the mundane and artifacts, every day life objects with uncanny elements, picturesque decors with minimal sets, positioning the audience on the edges of surreal tales and raw reality.
The sets investigate cliché objects and symbols culminating in an exhibition of the various tales relics.
