DEVISING

Amanda's interest in devising began her research into vernacular narrative and performance studies with everyday storytellers. She has worked with adults and youth to create both fictional and non-fictional collaborative performative narratives. Her work explores the ability for diverse participants to create a singular narrative that encourages open and active listening, constructive criticism, and challenges conventional notions of storytelling by incorporating multimodal sensory experiences and exploring non-linear storytelling options. Her work in devising has created site-specific theatre, addressed specific community needs, called for activism, and created a space for everyday storytellers to come together.
