Terminal hip: ADHD is a TDM/History and Literature senior thesis production presented by Julius Wade in the Harvard Art Museums' Naumburg Room.
The one-man performance explores the history of the USA//conceptions of the American Dream through the medium of Mac Wellman's American language play and in the context of the historic American art collections at the Harvard Art Museums.
The experience is presented within an immersive audiovisual landscape (using projection and a binaurally recorded 3D headphone-audio track).
A TDM Senior Thesis by Geneveive Lefevre
Written by Genevieve Lefevre ’20
Directed by Bianca Rodriguez ’20
Produced by Lily Grob ’22, Jessica Morandi ’21, and Ian Chan ’22
History is always written from the perspective of the winners, and the histories passed down in religious texts are no different. Eve and Pandora are both mythologized as “the first woman on Earth” through the Bible and Greek mythology, respectively. In their tales, these women each bring a curse upon humanity, helping to perpetuate the patriarchal ideas that our society is built upon. In the Beginning combines and retells them, flipping the narrative to provide a reimagining of what might have happened and calling attention to the fact that history is written by people in power to keep power.
