A lonely secretary remains in the office after all the other have gone home. From her little corner, using black and white photos from film magazines she keeps hidden between her endless piles of work, she escapes into a world of daydreams. There she is a glamorous movie star from the 1940's and finds her ideal love at last. But as the story unravels, as imagination and reality collide, her romantic tale becomes a Hitchcock nightmare!'
This is a performance dealing with the obsessions of Fantasies. How far we dive into them, the price of dreaming and the price of waking up. What lies beneath the Ideal Romantic love that is sold to us through such films, how powerful and insane can be our desire to hang on to that promise. This is also a performance dealing with the language of Cinema and its translation to theater and object theater. By recreating the means of cinema in the most " Low Tech" fashion, emerges a tension that is absurd and humorous.
The show received the award for ' Best Artistic Conception and Realization' at the International Adult Puppetry Festival of Pecs, Hungary (August 2010), and a Diploma of distinction from UNIMA (the worldwidepuppetry organization).
