„A Play Of Selves“ tells the story of a young woman, whose different split personalities first work against each other, threatening to overwhelm her. In the end this helps her to overcome her self-doubt.
The 16 different characters, all played by Cindy Sherman, show her first attempt to include herself in photographic productions in a for her work innovative artistic approach.
Sherman shot hundreds of photographies of herself in disguise and in dozens of different poses. She then cut single images of the black-and-white copies and staged them with the help of a carefully edited script into a theatre play.
