Abstract

In My Defense was a second stage theatre project that I submitted to explore some of the most common defense mechanisms of psychology. I got a group of 10 students to form an ensemble and explore these topics through research, contemporary examples in media, and theatrical scenes. We came up with a 50 minute show that emphasized how the different mechanism showed itself as well as all of the ways that we as humans can overcome them and take control of the things we can through coping mechanisms.
