Past event

IF is only one physical theatre performance. It shows a young woman who decides to become a real Barbie doll.
How far can we go? Different shape, different color... How much can we change our body to achieve perfection? Can it lead to true satisfaction? How much, the perception of our body, is manipulated from the outside? Who establishes the canons of beauty?


IF is an introspection in the head of a person struggling with self-image, self-esteem and imperfection.

IF is a diary of the feelings of a child who was born in the modern visual society.

Inspired by the real life of the phenomenon Barbie.
