This thesis examines the roots of gendered violence as the focus for creating a 15-minute devised performance along with Jenna Gadille and Julia Vaughn. My specific research is broken up into three categories: Toxic Masculinity, Domestic Violence, and Violence in Pop-Culture and Media. The performance featured three women, and was developed over a four-week rehearsal process. We used physical theatre to explore our research on gendered violence with a theme of female empowerment, in a physical way to be translated into theatre. In March of 2019, our thesis entitled “Beyond Us” ran for three performances in The Little Theatre Rifle Range at LIU Post.
