My thesis explores queer theatre and activism of the 1980s and 1990s and its depictions of HIV/AIDS to consider the ways in which the economics and on-stage representation of popular, ad hoc, and street theatre have constructed modern ideas of HIV/AIDS and the End-of-AIDS era. This research explores modern revivals and new works to explore the ways in which contemporary playwrights are in communication with and revolting against past presentations.
I am interested in how popular narratives concerning queer histories have developed and the ways in which the mythologising of these narratives counteract heteronormative theories which work to erase queer history.
