Mary Pearson is wrestling with FAILURE
Left standing at the disco. Caught naked on the red carpet. Gathering dust after the big sale. Expired. Bagged. Tagged. And recalled.
Fashion victim, aspiring pop diva, and chronic underachiever is consumed by delusional fantasies of commercial success.
Watch with amusement, outrage, empathy, embarrassment and relief as pedestal becomes soapbox and FAILURE turns into freedom.
A new solo performance bringing together visual absurdity with contemporary dance, comedy and social commentary.
Written, directed and performed by Mary Pearson
in collaboration with:
