I’m so glad I came, but I can’t wait to leave: An autoethnography of identity, gayness, and migration through theatre and performance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Can a theatre play provide actors and audiences with a feeling of being at home?This article is an autoethnographic work that addresses how the author finds, in his work directing the research-based theatre play Heavier than Air devised by Anne Harris and Stacy Holman Jones, a self-identification with its queer characters. Describing it as a play that explicitly and implicitly welcomes people to be queer and to tell their stories, the author analyzes how the play also symbolizes the free movement of people and the quest for home.
