Hi! I’m Kirsten, a senor Theatre Arts Major at Baldwin Wallace University. As my senior capstone project, I, along with five other students, are creating a devised theatre piece. Here, I will talk all about the process from start to finish, from my readings on devising processes, to the auditions, to rehearsals, performance, and all other happenings in between. I started working on this project in the spring of 2012 while I was still in London. At that time I had to turn in a proposal and get everything approved. Ever since then, I have been reading about devising in order to make this project a success. The inspiration for our piece is a question: What does love mean in different cultures? I have been wanting to create a piece of theatre that hi-lights how much we are affected by our culture. I don’t think people understand really how much of their beliefs, their personality, and even what they do on a daily basis is affected by culture. I figured that to show this we would need a device. That is where love comes in. Though we might all have different ideas of what is it, almost everyone can relate to the idea or feeling of love. So this is where we will begin, and I have no idea where it will take us! If you would like to share any experiences that you have on the subject please feel free to leave us a comment!
