Cosplayers (Costume Players) – the adolescents wearing costumes and props inspired by Japanese anime knights, heroines, and villains appear like a dream. After enacting imaginary slaughter, a battle against boredom emerges as the youths return home to watch television, eat, and face their domestic lives. (Yasmil Raymond: «Cao Fei’s Visual Theather of Real Events», i The Hugo Boss Prize 2010).
