Dibbuk

Costume and idea: Lovisa Johansson

Dibbuk was an experiment where we used the transformations of the costumes as the motor driving the action forward.

The woman enters carrying a ten meter long bridal veil. She leaves it stretched out on the floor thus forming a white passage into the room. She stands in front of us in her wedding dress. Then she becomes obsessed. The gown splits up and transforms her to a black shapeless monster. The feather decorations of the dress open up and take the shape of claw-like wings. Then the obsession is released and the woman appears again. Now she sits with a naked face and naked legs on a heap of rags. She slowly draws the veil into her arms mourning the children she never came to give birth to. SpiralN3
