After two+ weeks in Theatre 1, how do you feel you have changed? In relation to your interaction with others? In relation to your interaction with yourself (inner monologue)? In relation to school? What further changes are you hoping to see in yourself?
- I think I've changed because I'm more outgoing now and not really shy to be in front of an audience. I interact more with others even if I don't know them.The interaction with myself, I've been better with putting my ideas in words instead of just dozing them off. In school, I'm at my best right now, I'm trying to be the best I can, without doubt, I'm trying my hardest. Further changes I'm hoping to see in myself are for me to be able to do what I want without worrying about others opinions.
My group performance went really good. All the members of my group worked great together and we definitely put our best effort in the performance. Doing this performance really helped me work better with others and work better in front of an audience without being nervous. The rehearsal was kind of slow since we couldn't speak during the performance and it was timed. The rehearsal's kept getting better and better because we all began to flow with it smoothly. :)
Being part of the audience was great because I got to see everyone put their part and show their talent. I got to see how people reacted about being in front of an audience.
Please consider your monologue... what are you doing to prepare yourself for the performance? How are you going to bring physicality to your character? Also, what specifically would you like feedback about for your performance?
- I'm just going to prepare my theater voice..emphasizing every word and bringing life to the key words I use. I would like feedback on the details I used, the description in my monologue.
I wish you had know your piece a bit better, because by you reading the script entirely, it kept you face down and kept your facial expressions hidden. Please focus on your volume as well. It seems weird to "yell", but the projection is needed in such a large space. Overall, I appreciate your storytelling and think the writing was well done. Next step s to match that strength with matching the text with physical and verbal expression.
I really liked this project, it helped me get to know everyone else a little more. I learned about their favorite things and what they liked to do or the type of activities they did. I felt very comfortable talking about my set design and my collage :)
