Abstract (Summary)

Woke!: A Revolutionary Cabaret is a devised musical that explores racial injustice, gender bias, and the political climate in the United States of America today. The ensemble weaved the content out of their own stories. The inspiration of the scenic design for this particular narrative was formed out of personal experiences and was based on the metaphor of invisible walls to signify prejudice. In order to actuate this metaphor, steel pipe poles were hung on a grid above the stage, and moved on tracks to create the configurations that the scenes required. The white stripes that were drawn on the floor were reflections of borders.
