Bipartisanship Through the Eyes of the Supreme Court
MetadataShow full item record
My project has produced the first act of a written play examining the concept of judicial lockjaw and bipartisanship’s positive and negative effects on the Supreme Court. My work contributes to the genres of “Theatre of the Real” or “Documentary Theatre” and will expand upon the practice of examining political decisions and law practices through performance. Theatre, more than other mediums, has the power to use multiple forms of media and style to compare and contrast individual justices, ways of speaking, opinions, and cases. This allows performance to submerge an audience in an issue or debate, rather than needing to focus on one way of presenting information. Performance can connect the effects of past decisions and philosophies to their effects today in a way that makes an audience reflect on their own relationship with law and bipartisanship, as well as develop their own opinion.
