"The Yellow Wallpaper", written in 1892 by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, illustrates early beliefs surrounding the mental and physical health of women.
Director/Choreographer Aaron M. Wood adapted this written work into an original evening length dance performance held in conjunction with the 2019/2020 season of Casper College Department of Theatre and Dance and the 34th Annual Casper College Humanities Festival and Demorest Lecture. "The Yellow Wallpaper: a dance-theatre adaptation" is an emotionally charged and darkly humorous examination of an isolated woman's state of reality. Through the intertwining of dance, theatre, and multi-media elements, the performers find themselves accompanying a woman as she restlessly rips through her delicate paper mache identity.
