First scratched at Camden People’s Theatre’s Calm Down, Dear Festival 2014, I GOT DRESSED is a riotous, atypically sexy and messy hour of entertainment. Baring bodies and awkward truths, we unpack the dressing rituals of two females – framed by Boots, Beyoncé and some Very Upsetting Arithmetic. Featuring awkward letters, sarcastic projection, questionable dance, diabolical makeovers, and candid recordings of the performers and two young nephews. “Sensual/chaotic … funny, warm, and heartfelt”

 

I GOT DRESSED shines light on the disparity, instilled from infancy, between the body image of girls & boys; the staggering financial/temporal impact of beauty rituals; the emotional costs of our daily self-mortifications; and the domino effect these have on future generations. Sampling everything from pop culture to phenomenology, we bring Marx, Butler & Beyoncé to the stage with us and involve them in our embarrassment.
