MetadataShow full item record
This performance thesis is designed to help tell the narratives of those who have undergone grief. The primary focus of this study is to express the impacts grief has had on these individuals’ communication and to give hope to future individuals to encourage them to share their narratives of grief. Sharing narratives is a benefit within the scope of narrative medicine. The performance took place February 28, 2019, in the Hazel Kelly Wilson VIP Room in the Jack B. Kelly Student Center on the campus of West Texas A&M University. The performance was a compilation selection of the researcher’s personal narrative and the narratives of others surrounding the loss of siblings and parents. One of the main ideas expressed by this thesis is to share personal narratives of grief in order to help the healing process. Through the sunshine and the sorrow, we must tell our stories of loss, grief, and recovery.
