From The Director's Prism: E. T. A. Hoffmann and the Russian Theatrical Avant-Garde by Dassia N. Posner


  • Costume sketch for Ma, a constructivist character in Columbine’s Garter who is half human, half restaurant. One of her thighs is marked “roast” (rôti) and the other “soup” (potage), while her left breast has three taps for dispensing drinks.

    See book: p. 170, 171; figure 41. For a full description of Ma’s automaton costume, see the Columbine’s Garter pantomime libretto in appendix D, p. 223.
