‘The Yellow Wall-paper’

A dreamscape of unconscious desire and conscious reality alternates into gradual dissolution, as a shadow self emerges from the wallpaper to eclipse corporeal existence…
A performance inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s fin de siècle novel ‘The Yellow Wall-paper’ about a woman escaping the confines of domestic solitude. Sculptural costumes within an everyday setting will visually set the uncanny scene for a dance piece with live musical accompaniment.
