I think today went well. All the groups did good. my group did good even though we had to add in parts the last minute.
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 am practicing. I want to make it more me so that I wouldn't have to pretend to be someone I'm not. I would like feedback on the way I talk.
My puppet is going to be little red ridding hood. She wears a red hood, red dress, white apron and she is carrying a wooden basket. Since my puppet is based in a movie i think everyone will understand who my puppet is.
What's the significance of the red color on her cloak? The audience may recognize the "character" but it's your job to know her much more deeply so you can bring her to life with a lot of depth to her personality.
Creating a puppet was more difficult then I expected I really struggled with the face and hair. I got a lot of help from my group. I really like the hood. It was simple to make.
I think our performance was good but could have been better. It was difficult because there was a lot of us back stage and there wasn't enough space. I love the other puppets a saw. There was SO many cool creative puppets and it made me think that I should have been more thoughtful about mine. I think I could have spent more time drawing out details and actually spend more time making it.
Thanks Elina for your nice comments on my puppet, it took me a really long time, I almost thought I wasn't gonna have it finished by the time we were going to preform. I liked your puppet to. I thought your guys story was great, good job.
I think that Shakespeare is popular to this day because he really knew how to make the audience connect to the characters. It actually makes me think that he could have been a psychologist, or just a very creative imaginative person. On an honest level I don't want to preform one of his scenes because of the old english they use.
I wasn't there for the staging but it was hard to memorize the lines because they use old English.
