Picture a seven-foot-tall Victorian doll whose body opens up to reveal an entire cast of characters living inside her — singing cereal boxes, dancing pill bottles and giant soft drink containers that blast off into outer space. This doll believes in a world where using the right shampoo could win you the love of your life...but is it really that simple? What happens when you put the easy answers aside and stop choosing to be safe?
Creator/performers Tanya Khordoc and Barry Weil create a live multimedia collage, using toy theater, object manipulation and video imagery to take us on a surreal, satiric journey across the decades.
