Are You Buying?
A storefront mannequin searches for beauty, traveling back in time through fashion and beauty advertisements from the 1920s to today. At first, she’s thrilled to reinvent herself. But soon she’s caught in a loop of desire and dissatisfaction, chasing an ever-shifting beauty ideal.
Are You Buying? is supported in part by the Boston Foundation’s Next Steps for Boston Dance grant, the Downtown Crossing Business Improvement District (BID), and LuminArtz. Early research and development was funded by a Boston Foundation Live Arts Boston (LAB) grant and supported by Boston CyberArts.
