dc.description.abstractMy full-length thesis play, I Love You Like Hell, about the romance, marriage, subsequent separation, and ultimate fate of the modernist literary figures Frederick Philip Grove and Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, was borne of a desire to investigate, understand. and present their remarkable histories, and the motivation for their incredible actions, in dramatic form. To capture the unique qualities of these real and eccentric people, required that I use techniques closely related to visual arts. The play is a form of collage: a technique of art production, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole. For as well as writing myself, and using portions of the actual writing of my subjects, the requirements of the concept of continuous action inspired the idea of turning Freytag-Loringhoven’s ready-made sculpture objects into the set and creating some of my own. Freytag-Loringhoven is consistently dubbed as a marginal figure in the New York dada scene and Duchamp is firmly planted as the inventor of ready-made art. But there is compelling evidence Freytag-Loringhoven was at the forefront of this movement, and further, that she was the artist behind the famous ready-made urinal piece called ‘Fountain’, which was voted the most influential artwork of all time.
