Artist Ida Applebroog uses a wide variety of media to express themes of struggles within gender and political roles. Scripts is a facsimile of a compilation of handwritten notes, storyboards, mise-en-scène drawings and musical notations. Among the fragments on these pages: "Silences are the undercurrent of all dramatic events." "Each performance should be more of silence than words." "Any silence must be punctuated by sound eventually." Annotation in several colors indicates that the artist has intensively worked through her notes several times. For Applebroog, the staged scenes function as "a mode of narration," and "the narratives are not meant to be truths; the characters simply are." With only a few words and brief instructions, Applebroog develops stage plays of great dramatic density that she simultaneously comments on, questions, and interprets.
