ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON THIS PERFORMANCE

A woman struggles with her perfectionist and submissive conditioning in a world that commands her to “be a doll”. Living in a dollhouse filled with functioning toy versions of household items, she reluctantly carries out the traditional role of woman as pretty plaything and keeper of the home. Each of her daily play routines are a reinforcement of gender-based norms in an overwhelming cycle of adulthood mimicking childhood games that mimic adulthood. Far from the promised picture of perfection, an existential game of hide and seek emerges between her and her neuroses. As the distinctions between woman and doll diminish, repetitive and intrusive thoughts, compulsive behaviors, and symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder surface.
