Honors Program Thesis (UNI Access Only)
One-person shows (Performing arts); Horsted, Ali;
Although the appearance of one person theatre pieces can be traced back to ancient times, a resurgence of the genre has emerged in the past three decades, particularly in the field of Performance Studies. Much of the interest is related to the increased theoretical study of personal narrative and performance of self in everyday life. For instance, one work anthologizing such performances appears in Voices Made Flesh edited by Lynn C. Miller, Jaqueline Taylor, and M. Heather Carver (2003). The journal Text and Performance Quarterly regularly features performances in review, many of them one person shows such as Tami Spry’s “Skins” and Joni Jones’s “Broken Circles.” In some ways, these scholar-artists set the stage for my own project, “In the Ali Way.”
