Bertold Brecht + Hush: an Interview with America

In this collage, I took elements from Brecht's theory of Epic theatre, and applied them to the play Hush: an Interview with America. The elements of Epic theatre that I included in my collage include placards (this one with an Oscar Wilde quote I found fitting), the V-effekt, shown through the costumes and set design. Both are jarring, and don't remind one of Midwest America. This reminds the viewer that the play is not real, and that you should be thinking about the message behind it rather than believing in a false reality.
