Abstract: The purpose of this study was to experiment with mixed means for the purpose of communicating an idea through the act of theatre. The choreographer chose to use all elements of theatre at any time as they seemed necessary to the work and as they appeared to be the best method to communicate the various aspects of the idea to be expressed. The experiment attempted to combine arts for the purpose of creating a total effect. An eclectic method of approach was employed. The ideas to be communicated were concerned with the human condition and the nature of the existence of man in his world. The experiment involved writing the script, choreographing the dances, designing the set, designing the costumes, planning the lighting requirements and special effects to be employed, and directing all aspects of the production which culminated in a performance on April 20, 1972. The production was recorded on video tape.
