The performance is a kind of creed’s system. Everyone creates his own system, everyone chooses what to believe in, how to look like, how we would like to see ourselves and how we would like to show ourselves to the others. Man is used to think that such is “a way, the truth and the life” of every single individual. It is like a rebellion agains old, steady system. But.. The farther the better the man becomes a part of this system.

In/vogue is a reference to the revolutionary 60-70th, when there was build the foundation for our
present saturated with “freedom”./E.Nedobežkina

The use of Fashions in thought is to distract the attention of men from their real dangers. We direct the fashionable outcry of each generation against those vices of which it is least in danger and fix its approval on the virtue nearest to that vice which we are trying to make endemic. The game is to have them running about with fire extinguishers whenever there is a flood, and all crowding to that side of the boat which is already nearly gunwale under.” /C.S. Lewis “The Screwtape letters”
