Industrial revolution, street life, elaborate parties and freedoms received without asking permission - this characterises a woman who had the courage to step outside this crude world. Although the first signs of women's discontent with the social order of things appeared in the end of the 18th century, the change in women's role into something more self-evident happened after the First World War in the early 20th century.
Karoline Suhhov's diploma production is inspired by the dashing woman of the roaring 20s, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Woody Allen and by Ziegfeld Follies. Parading women will attempt to create a situation in which the audience is a contributor rather than a spectator.
Oscar Wilde has once said that the moral of art lies in the perfect portrayal of the imperfect. The author of this production shows a woman's imperfection in noticeable perfection.
