Mrs. of the Home

Alluding to a short-format preformative piece that observes the unseen moments of a woman exploring the fringes of lucidity; bearing witness as her world become threadbare through eyes clouded with synthetic apathy. Set in 1960's USA, when benzodrines were handed out freely to housewives, in conspiracy to keep them submissive and tolerant to the dark realities imposed on them.

 

A darkly comedic, surreal contemporary circus piece created & interpreted by Alyssa Bunce.
