I was nervous waiting for my lines to come up and throughout the whole play. I felt like our performance was good but we could have performed it better. The play that I watched was good and seeing another performance sort of eased the nerves of performing myself.
I think his work is viewed so high up and known extremely well to this day because of the way that he was able to combine both romance and drama.
All of his work was also very well written.
As far as performing one of his plays,I'm not too sure how I'd feel about it. I'd probably be nervous and overwhelmed because I'd have to remember so many lines and learn how to speak and understand the way they talked.
The characters I'm designing costumes for are Theseus & Thisby.
I don't have design that I've done yet but there are a couple that I have in mind. I'm going to try and make the design more of a ancient Athenian type of clothing and for Theseus have a more plain look with a couple of accessories that should go with the ancient times. There aren't many designs that I have in mind for Thisby yet.
During my performance I feel like I could have spoken louder. I had some beginning lines remembered but not enough to be able to perform without any help at all. Overall I think that my performance was alright. I know there are some things I could definitely work on such as not being nervous,speaking up,and memorization of lines.
My performance piece is going to be two poems. One of the poems are going to be sad & dark while the other will be happy & bright. Some of my thoughts while working on these two poems include hoping that I can tell a story with them & hoping that everyone will think they're okay, given my poems are never something I share with others let alone present onstage in front of a lot of other people. I'm going to be nervous about writing and reading them out. The major influences on writing these are my own personal experiences and my thoughts on various topics. The key thing I'm hoping the audience takes away from my performance is learning a little more about me and seeing a side of me that not many see.
