Usually she is standing on stage, trying to be honest, truthful, likeable. Trying to ‘be herself’ – for you. Not this time.
This is a piece that asks what ‘being yourself’ can mean, and for whom. It is about public selves, about the relationship between image and identity, and the ethics of pretending. It is an experiment in constructing personas and alternative identities. A risky, dishonest, head-first, whole-hearted, and perhaps slightly desperate attempt to try and be something we have never been before.
