Abstract:

 “We’re all explicable. What we’re not is extricable.” This joint acting thesis project, entitled 17 ½, was an 8-month journey that culminated in the production of an evening of scenes drawn from contemporary plays, plus one original piece. The compiling of work encouraged us to expand our knowledge of contemporary theatre and led us to a program that explored varying perceptions of power, gender, love, and regeneration. This project was extraordinarily dependent on successful collaboration: 5 directors, 6 actors, and a production team worked together to create an entirely new piece of theatre. We served in several roles as actors, directors, and producers, which gave us a new understanding of theatrical production and stretched our ability as artists.
