Ithaca, NY / Jan. 2014 - May 2015
My undergraduate honors thesis compared three organizations (SAFETY and Save the Pass were two of them) which used theater and performance for social change, each for distinct ends. As equal-part performer, activist, and researcher, it was generative to compare how each organization presents their respective visions of 'progress' to their social group.
