I believe that the playwright is the most important because without the playwright , Where will they get the script from.
My first performance was fun and thrilling acting a different character and not having to talk for my first performance and I can't wait to do more performances this year.
You had a really strong showing with your first performance for the class. You did a strong job of owning the movements of your spirit animal, but I would have hope you could live in those moments a bit longer so the audience could read what your character was doing and then be offered time to feel the suspense. Also, you explore a few facial expressions, but i would encourage you to consider acting with all the parts of the body including all the muscles in your face Good work!
1.) When I was writing my monologue,I recalled a personal event that happened in my life not far in the past.
2.)Using "spine" helped me decide what I should be focusing on to make the story more sad because that's how I decided to make my monologue.
3.)The theatrical gene that I would add is Emotional recall because when my animal died it was sad, but how I found it was even sadder, so to make use of the sad story.I want to use to Emotional recall to use a sadder tone.
1.) I believe the play "As you like it" is a amazing love story between Rosalinda and Orlando. I loved how Rosalinda disguised as a boy in the beginning to make bandits don't rob her, but then she uses the disguise to see if Orlando really loves as much as she does.
2.)I'm trying to memorize my monologue for the performance.
3.)To bring physicality to my character I''m going to bring back the feelings I had when my cat died.
4.)I might apply facial reactions to my monologue when its my turn to recite it.
During the time I was in the audience i was extremely nervous for when it was my turn. When it was my turn to go up I noticed that the lights were right on my head and how the audience was dark. I believe that I could've projected my voice more.
I thought the most hard part for me was drawing the abstract art to make it into the set and then looking for the right material. During the second week I thought it was a little easier because all you had to do was pick where you want everything to go. During the building process, I thought it was hard because you had to build all the things you want and you had to modify everything to make sure it fit on the set design. Another hard part was finding the right materials to make the furniture or buildings.
1) I thought of making a puppet of something that I watched as a kid because it was the easiest puppet i could make.
2)I struggled with attaching the arms onto my puppet since i couldn't figure it out I asked for some help from Mr.Hanks.
3) I felt that the cloths were the things that stood out most because i worked hard to make it a replica of what my character usually wears in the show.
4)My puppet is a quiet puppet that talk if it isn't a serious matter and she has a bad sense of direction.
When i was watching and performing the play was 2 different things. When i was watching the plays it was fun and then performing the play I was nervous because I didn't want to mess up my lines or when I was controlling the music. The vocals were amazing for other people plays, but for some they could use less cussing.
My inspiration for the final was TV talk shows. I thought that it would be nice to talk about the problems in the world and to hear someone else's opinion on the matter at hand. My role was to find the questions to ask for Alyssa's opinion. Alyssa's role was to answer the questions in her honest opinion. The process that I used to find the questions was to look at the internet or to watch the news.
I felt the final performance went good, what I didn't expect was for it to be funny, but the way richie and alyssa answered the questions. Some things i thought were great were the questions we used for the performance, but I would've liked to have more than 20 questions to use.
