In the wake of the sexual misconduct climate survey released by Tulane University in the spring of 2018, and the powerful #metoo movement, a team of student performers and professional artists will come together to create a new theatrical work and documentary film examining perspectives on love, sex, power and relationships on campus.
Roleplay aims to highlight student voice by taking a unique approach to the material and creating artistic products that will have resonance here and across the country. The work is in two parts. The live performance will feature a group of Tulane student performers presenting a site-specific play that combines documentary theater techniques and multiple storylines to capture the complicated nature of campus life. Over the course of the 2018-2019 school year, the team will collaborate to build the live show - all involved will research, devise new material, and write the script. An accompanying film, created by Katie Mathews and a team of student filmmakers, will document the creation process from auditions through final performance, and include scenes exploring life on campus.
