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 feel like i have become a little more confident but not as much. When i am around others i still don't feel as great depending on if i know the person or not. I feel like i am interacting well with others but not like fully greatly interacting in others and i want to interact with the students in the class more. When I'm around people i love and people who i truly care about i feel greatly calm and marvelous, but in class it is a different feel. I hopefully see myself as more confident not awkward and more strong.
Jasmine was very good when she was acting and had very good focus on her character and gave a lot of emotion to the audience about her character. Good job
Idk what i am suppose to write but i feel pretty confident and silly when it comes to people i love in this class.
Reflect on your Group Mime Performance. Consider the rehearsal and performance process as well as being a part of the audience.
The Mime was about me being a grim reaper and one of my group was like an angel and the rest are animals and we try to turn them against each other, but mostly I was the person that tricked them into fighting each other and some died and I take their souls and the angel took one of their souls. and after the final battle both of the animals died and i was stopped by the angel and get locked away forever.
I thought our performance was great because we put a lot of thought into our play and wore costumes and wore makeup on our faces. I was proud that our performance was over 2 minutes. I kinda thought we need to work on somethings into our performance and could be better. The performance was actually good.
First, we thought about the type of scenario we should do. Second, we pick the scenario and act it out.
Third, we thought about costumes and makeup.
Fourth, We perform.
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?
To prepare for myself I practice my monologue. I am going to bring physicality through my character by having emotion and making my facial expression more real and emotional. I want feedback on my movement and emotions.
My performance on my monlogue was really good. When I am up there I feel confident and nervous at the same time. When you try to act out a monologue you change into character like you are that person in the monlogue. So far, my monologue was pretty good. I feel like a different person when I was up there. I also got the hang of having to be confident in my act.
Yeah i do that me as Christian i'm nervous but THE CAPTAIN PLLLLEAASE that guy is never scared!
Your performance was confident. Your physicalization on stage was casual and natural, though I would hope for you to use more of the stage. While your story was creative, I had a hard time connecting all of the plot points. Perhaps with more allotted time these story elements could be more fully realized. Overall, you had great vocal tonality and pacing, making it interesting to view and hear your piece.
My experience of presenting my set design project was nervously scary. I feel like my brained almost popped out. I feel my project could do better and I wish I can explain more and answer the questions of other people. But talking about it seems fine but wish it can be a little louder. The best part on this project is probably my gobo design it looked really nice i had some mistakes on it but it still turned out good.
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 character is supposed to look ominous, intimidating, and horrendous. But he is suppose to look like an old lady. His personality is evil because he likes to kill and murder beings he despises. He wears a black/faded grey veil to cover his face, he wears a black dress with lots of lace, and wears black boots underneath. His face expression shows a creepy smile or smirk. These attributes can show a deeper significance to the character because it shows his true being that's inside and show how his appearance may seem odd and outrageous.
I'm excited to see and hear this character come to life!
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?
My puppet looks really ominous and the head is tilted slightly to the right. I'm proud of the face that i made it looks really creepy. I mostly struggled with the clothes because making clothes looks hard, but when I look at Brian's clothes I had an idea so I appreciated his ideas. I tried cutting a lot of black fabric and made a long sleeve shirt and I added yarn in the inside of the shirt to make my character look like an actual being. I believe the face was my outstanding creation because when I made the face I had the idea of making it look really creepy and made is mouth area into a creepy smile with teeth showing. The long dress was my 2nd favorite because the clothes were all over the place and I made the dress randomly and looking messy-like but it still looked good. Everything is looking great so far.
Reflect on your Puppet Play Performance (focus manipulation, voice, story, etc.) Also, describe your impressions of the puppet plays of other groups.
The other plays impression seems okay. Taylor's impression of her puppet was very spectacular, Tobi's was good as well, but needs to work on how to get her voice louder, Raj voice on his puppet was great, Angie's was similar to Tobi but she gets into her puppet well, and Steven needs to get louder but his manipulation is great and funny. I feel like I can have a scary voice but I need to work on my manipulation and my voice a little more. Overall it is great working with my group.
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.
On Shakespeare's work he believes and tries to make his plays works by practicing and commanding people on what to do he takes the responsibility of everything and just keeps trying till his plays a perfect and emotional. I feel pretty normal about the next project because I did done a Shakespeare play in middle school and I also read the play Romeo and Juliet in Freshman year so I feel okay.
Describe the two costumes you're designing for "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Which characters are you designing for and how are you making their clothing an extension of their character? Consider describing the line, shape, silhouette, color, fabric, and accessories that are making your design interesting and thoughtful.
I'm making more of a Juliet and Romeo style but more dreamy and extravagant. I'm designing for Thisby and Pyramus. Mostly I'm making a design for Thisby. Thisby will be wearing a dress with a frilly pattern on the front of the skirt. The middle part in the front of the skirt between the frilly side patterns is a fabric design of flowers and they or symmetrical from each other. There will be a cape attached to the collar. shoes like elves. Gloves with a long smooth transparent fabric. A type of crown or tiara but like a head band with jewels. Maybe earrings in a diamond shape.
Take a moment to respond to at least two other classmates, offering a "Yes, and..." as they head toward their "Midsummer's Night Dream" scene performance. Offer encouragement and advice so to add to their confidence and support their growth in acting.
I feel afraid and nervous and I want my group to get into it as well.
Heller you are great in the play just show a bit of feelings during your performance I will try to pray for you praise the lord hallujer.
Bruh you need more emotion but i love you i have known you for yeas bruh i hope we stay in touch after the years hmu. (916) 803-6932
Reflect on your experience performing the scene from "A Midsummer Night's Dream". What was it like to memorize lines and staging? How did you feel your acting went - in voice and physicalization?
I was soooo lazzzyyy I felt like i was blowing my mind out. I memorized stuff before so this took me like 3 days except for that long paragraph in the back of the script. I feel I didn't show emotion and gestue because of my nervousness. But my voice i think it was oki i give myself like a B- but it wasn't that great
Submit a Creative Process Reflection for your Final Scene explaining what your performance piece is about, how you’re putting it together, and what some of your thoughts and influences are as you’re constructing the performance. What are you hoping the audience takes away from your performance? BE DETAILED AND THOROUGH WITH YOUR RESPONSE
Me and Tobie's Final Scene will be a play about us becoming a dance group. In the first 4 or 5 minutes of the play we will be talking about our dance and kpop and i will be telling Tobie to have a sleepover at my house for dance practice. The rest of the 4 minutes we will be doing 2 dances from kpop boy band artists and we will make it look cute and cool. I'm hoping the people will like our dances because that is like our main performance instead of the play itself. Overall, we start by talking to each other in the play and the scene is at school.
Then we talk about kpop and seeing each other at my house then we start dancing for like 6 minutes of the songs.
