The project represents the night dress of Tatiana Larina, the heroine of the novel "Eugeny Onegin" by A.S.Pushkin.

In the project it is shown how can the famous image of a true love in the classical literature become obsolete during centuries. Tatiana Larina, who was glorified during past century as a sample of unselfishness and obedience for school children , is represented here as a mentally ill, ridiculous person, wandering through a night garden in a slipping costume, eating berries as well as sitting on them, reading "Camera Lucida" by Roland Barthes and "Enfer" by Dante.





The project won a first prize in The National Competition of Theatre Art " The best costume of Tatiana Larina", Moscow, 1999
