The Wardrobe Project: Can I Still Wear This? by Sonja Linden and company

A site-specific verbatim piece set in a private bedroom exploring how women transition from their younger selves through the contents of their wardrobe

ViSiBLE’s innovative verbatim programme The Wardrobe Project, Can I Still Wear This?  premiered in a bedroom in North London on March 11th to mark International Women’s Day on Mother’s Day. It now continues to travel to different bedrooms accumulating stories along the way.

This dynamic show is in two-parts: one part a performance in a private bedroom and the other a conversation with audience members about how items of their own clothing have had particular significance over time.

Thank you for creating such a stimulating evening. So interesting to see how people define themselves through attitudes to clothes, and how much those ideas influence relationships. A rich vein indeed.
