The transformative power of hats has been used through time and continents
to assert social status, gender role, and authority. On stage, hats contribute to 
theatricalize life-inspired and imaginary characters and enhance their emotional dimensions. 
Shaping Character showcases two dozens of hats from our collection and features productions
from Pavley-Oukrainsky Ballets, The Ballets Russes, and artists such as Dorothy Kirsten, Bidu
Sayao and designer Goncharova.
