A Solo Performance Devised and Performed
by Mar J. Cox (COL ‘16)

Grayspace (n.): Fractures in our social consciousness, areas of society left undefined or left forgotten, 
the place where invisible life teems below the surface.

Written and performed by Theater & Performance Studies (TPST) Major Mar J. Cox (COL ’16), this senior thesis project shines a light on the missing voices and narratives that take place in the frayed and cracked parts of our society. Whom do we not see? Why? A transwoman takes the D6 nearly every Sunday. A waiter smiles when a toddler compliments his skirt. A homeless artist accepts pepperoni pizza donations as payment for his company, but never for his cardboard artwork. This living project, inspired by interviews and leading to a multi-character performance work, suggests the only way we will know is if we listen to the Voices of the Invisible. A work-in-progress, Grayspace is based on yearlong ethnographic research in Washington, DC.
