The 51-year-old actress will take part in the production created by Paris-based photographer and artist Katerina Jebb during rehearsals for 'Musée Galliera' director Olivier Saillard's latest fashion performance, "The Impossible Wardrobe."
Swinton will don a white laboratory coat complete with white gloves and high heels for the production, entitled "The Future Will Last a Very Long Time," which will be screened on a loop during each night of the Paris Fall Festival - a contemporary arts spectacle known in France as the Festival d'Automne à Paris - from September 29 to October 1, WWD reports.
The "We Need to Talk About Kevin" actress will be seen flicking through the historic archives of the Musée Galliera's storerooms and discovering pieces such as a Madeleine Vionnet coat, which once belonged to U.S. writer Natalie Clifford Barney.
Legendary faces from the past, such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Sarah Bernhardt, will be screened onto Tilda's body and shown behind her.
The Scottish actress is known for her love of eccentric designer clothes and recently admitted she is lucky to have people who want to dress her.
"For me, it's just a matter of having a box cutter to open the dress box," she said. "I turn up in a pair of old corduroy trousers and I'm very fortunate to have friends who send me boxes with gowns. It's like the Cinderella complex. It's the friends that make the effort, not me."
