Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

As you like it: The road to design
by Knehans, Amanda, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 15; 1523340
Abstract (Summary)

Through associations and personal experiences, I settled on the overarching concept that, "The road is closed," for the stage design of As You Like It. Pulling from my surroundings as inspiration, I created a realistic road on the Studio Theatre's stage using found and borrowed objects to enhance the road's authenticity. With a blocked road as a metaphor for the characters' inner journeys to overcome their own prejudices and achieve an enlightened way of thinking, the audience joined the ensemble on their path of self-examination and discovery.
