William Golding and the Bachelor 

In this project 10 children in elementary school took a transcripts from the 11h Season of the television show the Bachelor and re-wrote the season finale. The range of endings that the students developed included introducing characters as spies, turning swimming pools into wrestling rings and transforming ex-husbands into horses. The project questioned how media is used as a tool to teach youth gender, sexuality and familial norms and provided the youth an opportunity to talk back to media. The project culminated in a performance at Under Saint Mark’s Theatre (NY). (2013)
