Their aim? To peep behind the vanity mirror and search for answers to questions of beauty, morality, ageing and power, and to playfully ask why they so crave the eye of the beholder.
The project is inspired by Oscar Wilde’s character, Dorian Gray, who meddles in the domain of the gods with the aid of a magical painting.
He suspends the process of ageing and remains young and beautiful forever, at a terrible cost to his soul.
There’s probably a little bit of Dorian in all of us. What happens when he is denied the limelight forever?
Creation (Pictures for Dorian) is part of LIFT 2018, a London-wide festival of international performance taking place throughout June. Creation (Pictures for Dorian) is co-commissioned by LIFT, Brighton Festival and Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
For ages 14+.
