The Birds: METAMPRPHOSIS, The Performer in Time & Space (BDA_UK03)

The objective of this project was to present the birds as the historical Peacock men to contrast the modern unfashionable man, represented by the protagonists and the rest of the mortals in the play. Furthermore, the mortals are designed as outmoded commuters trying to escape from the smothering reality of city life, whereas the birds are presented as flamboyant creatures that echo the fashionable man lost in history. The two protagonists however, as men who abandon the city life, are presented as two boring commuters who strip away elements of their ordinary clothes and transform on stage into exotic birds. The play was set as an all male cast. One of the transforming costumes was realised, photographed and filmed in action.
