Description

The primary focus of this research is to enrich my perspective as a playwright by gathering data on the topic of body-shame. Dr. Mello and I are conducting interviews with people of varying genders, ages, and walks of life in order to discover how each person experiences body-shame and body-ease. I will write a draft of a play which will prove to be richer and more truthful with the aid of this new data. That will then be workshopped and performed with a company in Helsinki, a city with a lasting tradition of theater that strongly impacts public discourse.
