In a drag parody of the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, ‘Mirror Mirror on the Wall’ re-fabulates the classic Snow White story, narrating what would have happened after the ‘happily ever after’. The director Igor Urban makes use of an aesthetics of artificiality and exaggeration to promote displacements and estrangements in the classic images of enchanted princesses, queens, and princes.
