Do Tabloid Headlines Control Everyday Life?
As dramaturge, with tabloid backdrops, I cast my invented characters, Barbies, Kens, and other icons into vignettes, to convey tropes of contemporary life. In graphic comic-book style, my fictional character/avatar Wretched Sister (WS) experiences life events as calamities, which "coincidentally" occur on the same dates as tabloid catastrophes, collapsing two unrelated incidents into one time-slot. The horror, bright visuals and deadpan text create incongruous adjacencies. In other words, I try to be amusing if possible.
