Girl, That’s So Tragic


Girl, That’s so Tragic is a contemporary exploration of Aristotle’s Poetics with a goal of making the original text more accessible and developing an understanding of a highly valued theoretical text on performance. Following Aristotle’s definition of tragedy and the structure of ancient Greek tragedies, a small ensemble of students will brainstorm ideas of “contemporary tragedies” that could be applied with this form and structure. Throughout a devising process, these ideas would be tested and tweaked by the ensemble until everyone has a strong understanding of Greek Tragedy and all of its elements and how they function in performance. The ensemble will then choose one idea to turn into a fully realized contemporary tragedy, utilizing contemporary language and ideas while maintaining the balance explored in the workshop with elements from ancient Greece.
