Thesis Document


This award-winning self-mythologized facade of a rock show incorporates life-scale video projection, original music, gestural choreography, and on-the-go stage props to coalesce into a black-box style theatrical spectacle meets dirty diary exploring the elusive and dichotomous nature of queer identity. With a reliance on the grimy mustard-coloured lights and sequins of 70s glam rock aesthetics, the protagonist travels the mental collapse of a dark night of the soul, searching for purpose in a world that doesn’t care to be purposeful. Themes include rejection, broken promises, wishes on a star, deals with the devil, and packing up to leave with no intention of return; segueing into old photo albums, crying and stitching the tears to your face, and fading into an old morning’s coffee at the dawn of dandelion’s spring. Blazers and boxers are the perfect attire to watch the gaping hole in the sky swallow everything in its path, leaving behind the ghost of glitter’s past.
