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?
Now my interaction with others is better than how it was before. It is making get more social and meet new friends that I can hang out with. My interaction with myself has gotten better since being in Theatre 1. My interaction with school has gotten better. Now I can have conversations with my teachers. What further changes i am hoping to see is me having a lot more friends by having interactions with them.
Now, head to your personal blog reflection page and reflect on your Group Mime Performance. Consider the rehearsal and performance process as well as being a part of the audience.
I think my group did a wonderful job on our scene. The rehearsal was not actually that hard because our scene was pretty simple. The performance process was easy to remember because our group kept going over the scene. Being a part of the audience was good because we were silent while other actors were up there doing their scene.
The physicality I am bringing to my character is me pretending to have a steering wheel. Another physicality is me downshifting and shifting up gears for my car. I am hoping to hear that I did a really great job and that my performance was exactly what I wanted.
I'm looking forward to seeing it! Make sure you know it well so you can focus on your movements like steering and shifting.
Consider the work you put into creating your puppet. How did you go about it? What did you struggle with along the way and how did you problem solve those moments? What parts of your puppet really stand out to you as great? How did those parts come about?
I did good on thinking what my puppet should be and making it. I struggled on thinking what my character should be to match my script. I solved this problem by asking my group mates on what character I should be. The clothes on my puppet is the only thing that stands out. Those parts came about by looking what my clothes my character had when i thought what character I should be.
Our group really did a good job on re hearsing our parts and making our puppets. Each and everyone of us did help each other out on making the puppets and making the script. Our script did take a ton of time to come up with. But in the end our script did really match our characters.
You have likely studied Shakespeare prior to this class, or at the least were introduced to him and his work this week. Reflect on why you believe one person's work could be so highly acclaimed and how you feel taking on one of his famous scenes for your next project.
I believe that one person's work could be so highly acclaimed because they worked really hard to come up with what they were doing. I also believe because their ideas could be worth a lot of money.

Describe your puppet character in looks, but also in personality. What physical things (fabrics, accessories, details) are you going to consider for your puppet creation that will help us to know and understand the character? How and why will these attributes have a deeper meaning for your character?
My puppet just has monk clothes on. His personality is great because he has a ton of friends. This clothes makes him look like he is a really good fighter. He also has a stick that has wings to make him fly to places quicker and quicker.
