In the development of “Reese Sigman is Lying Completely Still”, I asked myself: What is social performance? What are the effects of social performance on the psyche? Is there a way to stop performing? Through the research of personal image, subcultural membership, and the “true self”, my inquiries about social performance were confirmed. We are always performing. During the writing and rehearsal process, I explored performance within social situations such as having a crush, going to a job interview, and talking to yourself. My SOURCE presentation is a filmed collection of songs and scenes examining social performance. My research guided the creation of this new musical, which will be presented May 26-28 in CWU’s Milo Smith Tower Theatre.
