Abstract: 

This thesis – the documentation for my graduate project, Gramma – records and discusses the artistic choices in the creative process of writing and performing. Although often simultaneous, the creative development is artificially divided into two chapters for coherence. Chapter One articulates the development of the script in the trajectory of autobiographic writing. The chapter explains how life experience and memory serve as material for a creative writing, and records experiments in the construction of the play structure. Chapter Two describes the making of a theatre production in the light of intercultural theatre – including integration of cultures and hybridization of aesthetics. The thesis examines the combination of writing and performing theatre as an autoethnography, and concludes with the direction of my future research and artistic practice.
