Language & physicality : form & inquiry : how & why I work
MetadataShow full item record
I write plays to probe, not to satisfy, my curiosity. While my questions live in the now, my plays use the past as a launch pad; I am fascinated by the holes in history and I bridge these gaps through inquiry instead of answers. An intimate connection to content determines my approach, and, in the generative phase of my writing, my relationship to content evolves, and defines the structure of the final product. In this thesis, I will look at three plays I’ve written in my time at University of Texas: Poor Herman, Catalina de Erauso and Slumber Party to interrogate how I employ language, physicality, and inquiry to craft and form my work.
