Audience Interactive Theatre Performance

Using the inspiration of fairy tales, I will devise an audience interactive theatre performance to be held at Roots Bistro (a restaurant on the square of Georgetown) with the collaborative help of present and past Southwestern students across all majors. Together we will explore the process of writing an entirely new script, working in an avant-garde location, and creating interactive theatre that breaks down the preconceived barriers between actor and audience member. This project will be an excellent opportunity to bring together both the Georgetown and Southwestern communities, along with making theatre relatable through its interactivity. I hope to reach out to people with all different interests and backgrounds to make this performance a truly diverse, collective, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
