Portraits of women in prison.
Set in a prison environment, the stage costumes introduce a whole new field of aesthetics, poetry and symbolism, giving a new look to the opposite extremes of the stereotypical female prisoner.
The deliberately empowering depiction creates images / avatars that question the representation and its relation to identity. With their consent, their faces in full view, these female prisoners leave behind their impersonal clothing, anti-social clothing. They cloud the issue, revealing another possibility.
