Are You Buying?
In this new theatrical dance performance taking place in a Downtown Crossing storefront, a fashion mannequin dreams she has it all, traveling back in time through fashion and beauty advertisements from the 1920s to today. Initially thrilled to constantly reinvent herself, she ultimately realizes she’s caught in a loop of desire and dissatisfaction, chasing an ever-shifting beauty ideal.
