The Life in Plastic

the life in plastic

In "The Life in Plastic," a site-adaptive outdoor work, two real-life Barbie Dolls introduce you to all of their friends! Using 48 knock-off fashion dolls, 24 feet of cling-wrap, and a cordless electric drill, "The Life in Plastic" starts fantastic, ends in sacrifice.

"The Life in Plastic" was in residency at Crojik's Croft in June 2018. Preliminary research took place at the Emmet County Transfer Station in Horton Bay, Michigan.

Additionally, Danielle Doell was awarded a Flight Deck residency at Open Flight Studio in July & August 2018. There she continued research on “The Life in Plastic” with six Seattle-based performers and dancers.
