I think that without a playwright there wouldn't be a story to act out. At the same time, a playwright's script would just be a script if there wasn't anyone to act it out. My first performance went well I'd say. Before I felt ready to do it. During the performance I felt a little nervous, but by the end I felt accomplished.
I'm glad you felt good after the show was done. You did a great job working with your group to develop a story of chapters that allowed each character to shine. You did a great job of maintaining focus and character. You next task is to carry that through to your facial expressions so we can see what your feeling and thinking on your face. Good first go.
I had an idea hit me about my monologue. My idea about performing a story through rhymes live. A spine definitely helps me write my story. My characters tactic to tell the story is through rhyming which he likes to do. My genre is musical because the story is told with music
My experience was good. I really felt like I was watching a great story because of the actors, they did a great job playing each character. To prepare for my monologue I continuously rehearse my verses. I will bring physicality to my character by focusing on the way I deliver my lines. From the theatre I will try and apply emotion into my monologue performance like the actors put emotion into their characters.
For the monologue I prepared a song to perform. That didn't go as planned so I didn't make a story. Instead I decided to tell a story on the spot. I felt really nervous while doing it for the fact that I didn't know what I was gonna talk about. After that I was just happy it was over
My set design is about a story in a car garage. I took inspiration from the cars I put on my collage. My scene will be a garage. My design concept includes model cars and some structures.
Creating my puppet I already an idea in my mind. I wanted to make a character that was a killer and make him look scary. I struggled with wrapping his sack on his head because it wasn't easy to hold it down and glue. Also the clothing wasn't easy. I think my puppet really has a great look to his head. The sack really shows evidence of killing on it. I want to bring out a funny vibe from him even though he is a crazy murderer.
I thought the puppet show was fun. Myself I think I did good, wasn't the easiest thing to do but I did it. I think the voice I could of worked on. But overall the play didn't go as planned but it was fun.
My experience performing this Shakespeare play was bad. I didn't have motivation to perform an old play. I think Shakespeare is still relevant because he was great at making plays that made people feel a certain way which they are immersed in.
My final performance is a showcase of my art in music. I will be putting together a couple of songs together and performing them one after the other. This weekend I will be writing and finalizing my work. I am hoping to perform songs that show skill in different parts of rap.
I think my final performance overall went pretty good. I think I absolutely did great on my first three songs. If I could go back I would of practiced more for my fourth song because I fully relied on my phone which was bad. What I took away from the whole term was learning how theatre is really made.
