Loosely based on a text by Elias Canetti, the show imagines a society in which vanity has been banned. Mirrors and photos are systematically destroyed in the name of morality. However, as it happens, the prohibition carries the transgression and a black market of appearance is quickly set up. A reflection about rules and values related to contemporary society that day after day becomes more individualistic and appearance-oriented.
