Facade Theatre at Works Ahead
Celladour is an imaginative tale of the grotesque process of beautification.
Inspired by the Geisha culture and making specific reference to the cultural cruelty of Chinese foot binding – (which has been administered to little girls for over 1000 years). Celladour addresses the search for an intrinsically unattainable standard of beauty.
Celladour is a softly narrated, highly visual and distinctly physical performance which is told through the actions of three trainee Geishas, undertaking their universal quest to become “The Madame Butterfly” – the ultimate beauty.
