Gilgamesh, A Musical Epic: The Journey of a Thesis Show

Petkovsek, Peter

This essay is organized in two large parts. The first one, more academically structured, pertains to the research I did about and around Gilgamesh. I give a historic and contextual explanation about the original Epic, and analyze some of the themes I was thinking about while making this show. The second is a personal account of how I experienced the process of the show, what issues came up, what was new to me, what questions I had, and how it all went. It is loosely structured in a chronological way, but mostly I followed my stream of thoughts wherever it led me.
