My thesis project is a response to Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House; entitled ANAG[NORA]ISIS, it is an adaptation and expansion upon the life of Ibsen's character Nora Helmer. Using dance, music, poetry, borrowed and original text, ANAG[NORA]ISIS delves into the unexplored aspects of Nora Helmer's consciousness, imagining what passes through her mind in the moments before she decides to leave her husband. In addition to both writing and adapting A Doll's House, I also directed ANAG[NORA]ISIS at San Jose Repertory theatre's Emerging Artists Lab.
