My character – governor’s wife – is found in utopian world based on socialist realism of 1940-1950. The difference between idealism and realism is shown through dramatical transformation of the costume from neat, sculptured shape into grotesque, dystopian version of the character. The performer will become an artificial body in a chaotic upside-down world.
