After two weeks in theater 1 I have become a little more comfortable with being in front of others. I hope to get better during class.
When others were performing it was interesting seeing others ideas. They came up with things that I didn't even think of. I think I did pretty good at performing for it being my first time. I laughed a little bit but I expected to do worse.
I think that I will just try to think about the way I would tell my story to my kids. I will try to memorize my monologue and act as if I am having a normal conversation. I will just like to know how nervous I seemed and if that made my performance worse.
I think that I did better than I thought I would. Nerves messed me up a little and I didn't look at the audience as much. Even though I memorized my monologue I was still looking at the paper. I think I would have also changed my story because when I was reading it at home I would also be thinking of other ideas that would have been better for my monologue. But overall I think I did pretty good.
I appreciated your storytelling, but because you read the script, it kept you from being able to express the piece more fully, through facial and physical expressions. When you said "I did not believe her", your vocal inflection was spot on. Those moments of emotional truth are the spots you need to build your performance around, bringing the entire thing up to that level of expression.
During my presentation I was really quite which is something I need to work on. When I was drawing I was thinking about an office for a fashion designer who is finally getting a chance to show her boss what she can do.First time she is doing what she wants and not getting coffee for her superiors. I was always thinking of an office that I would like something girly and still nice where I can work. Over all I think my model and my presentation was pretty good.
My puppet is suppose to look as though she is about to go out and that she must impress people. She is a girl from a small town who wants to make it big and become a star. She is strong and will do what ever she has to do to get what she wants. She will not take no for an answer.
When I was making my puppet the head and face did not turn out the way I wanted. But I really like the way the dress looks. Even if I ran out of hair I did what i could to fix it and it does not look bad. I ended up with a puppet that looks pretty good but that may need so work.
I am not very good at the voice but I did enjoy using the puppets. I was kind of hard to move the puppet with out dropping it. Also the story was very fun to read because it was weird and interesting to write. I very much enjoyed seeing everyone else's puppets and hearing there stories.
Ello mate! Hope everything is well. Although, I very well am not well as for the moment I am very much TRIGGGGGGGERRRREDDD! at the moment.
I think that we focus a lot on Shakespeare because he would right things that other wouldn't. He also mixed comedy with tragedy. I am excited to read more of his work and to perform for our next project.
For my male costume I was thinking that it may be for Lysander he would be wearing a royal blue coat. This coat would have pointed shoulders and his neck would be covered from the back. he would have two different white shirts one one with ruffles at the neck and one over that with buttons then the coat. He would be wearing plain white pants since there is so much going on on the top and black shoes. For the female I was thinking of something for Thisbe. She will have an all off white dress to the ground. Over that would be lace so that it is not too simple. The lace will go to the bottom of her neck and she will have lace sleeves. With buttons from the top to bottom. Everything will be off white including the shoes.
Don't worry you will do good
You will do great I know you will. All you have to worry about is me remembering my lines so we don't mess up.
I think that I did pretty good on my performance. I did not mess up as much as I thought I would. Once I figured out a system to try to memorize my lines I finished much quicker. It was not as bad as I thought it would be since a lot of other people also did not have there lines down.
For our play we are going to have a homeless man as the main character. He had a friend but he was killed then he had a new friend but he was ran over. There is a person who it trying to kill mason who is our homeless man. I just want our audience to be entertained and that our play is different from everyone else.
