Description "Imagine: closet door opens, a girl steps out. Pearls hanging down all the way to the floor, lipstick all around her face. Second episode: men's hat and moustache. Third scene: Jon Bon Jovi. Et cetera.
Being Greta by performance artist and choreographer Maija Hirvanen deals with the essence of the kind of mediated substance that lives in a person only for a moment, moving then to a next target. The piece works on turning around the obsession of fame and concentrating on how cultural icons can lead to personal and collective creativity. In its episodic structure, Being Greta shifts in between personal notions and cultural references." (source: programme)
