Student Study Guide 

Originally conceived as a work to combat personal feelings of anxiety, the research and creation evolved to dive deep into a fragmented reality that focuses on conflicting internal monologues that make up personalities. Rather than thinking that thoughts and identity are stagnant ThySelf views them as ever evolving layers that crack and separate to create individual moments that make up our day-to-day reality.

This show is for anyone who has felt lonely in a crowded room or at peace in a moment of solitude.
