Battledress challenges preconceptions of the female by juxtaposing stereotypical femininity with powerful figures clad in protective amour. At times, the women are held captive in unwanted cages; later, they are stern, statuesque, performing gestures of authority. The performance depicts an internal battle as its characters attempt to deconstruct their assigned roles, presenting an alternate reality that is at once dream-like and relatable.
