Group Midterm:

Aidan Nelson, Alexandra Lopez, Nathier Fernandez & Sam Hains

One Simple Sentence Hedwig and the Angry Inch is about a painful quest for wholeness.


One Complex Sentence Hedwig and The Angry Inch is about repairing the sense of self that fractures in the face of trauma.

Three -Five Sentence versions of the story Hedwig and the Angry Inch is about a gender-queer rock musician retelling the story of her life on stage. She relives the pain of trying to find completeness through the conditional love of others: an emotionally absent mother, a botched sex-change operation, and the betrayal of her musician protégé. We are left with a vision of an individual overcoming of the painful divisions in herself to become whole.
