Hailed by the Washington Post as fascinating and fantastic, Beauty takes a gimlet-eyed look at the extremes women go to achieve impossible beauty. Jane Comforts wildly versatile company members don false eyelashes, sequins, and Spanx to compete in a nightly Barbie Beauty Contest judged by random audience members. Ditching Barbie drag, they examine the many beauty procedures available to us lesser creatures: liposuction, botox, plastic surgeries, etc., and those that arent: Photoshop, the digital magic that retouches every model we see in magazines. Beauty invites men and women of all ages to consider how they perceive and project notions of female beauty in both benign and malevolent ways, consciously and subconsciously. Comfort was awarded a Guggenheim to create this wickedly funny and poignant work, which is performed in repertory with her Bessie award-winning Underground River.
