Honors Thesis


Avant-garde is described as an experimental technique of art, whether it be fashion, painting, or theater. These methods have been effective in helping the audience connect to the script. This script, entitled Everyone, echoes the high emotional value placed on common human themes; depression, hatred, faith, isolation, self-consciousness, and education are aspects of life we have all experienced and have had adverse and inescapable influences on our health. Everyone is a way to describe the cycle of life revolving around us. The theater has always been a conduit for catharsis, evolving from stringent rituals to emerging contemporary works. Over time, boundaries have been traversed in ever emerging styles to help incite emotions from audiences. The recent societal shift of an inundation of opinions and choices, resulting in a state of emotional limbo, is the cause and foundation of my writing.
