Who is more important... the playwright or the cast and crew? Defend your assertion with your logic and some examples. 2. Also, how did your first performance in class go? What did it feel like before, during, and after?
I think the both are equally important because without a playwright that cast would be acting in the dark. They need a background a setting, and a conflict. Also a playwright needs a cast and crew because without its just a story. You need a cast and crew to bring it to life.
Consider your monologue... Give a synopsis of your story and the character you're going to portray. What are you doing to prepare yourself for the performance? How might you bring physicality to your character?
The character I'm going to portray is a person who is desperately trying to prove her innocence. I am using emotional recall. I am going over my lines so that i remember them. I could use hand gestures in order for people to know my actions as i move
Reflect on your monologue performance. What it like in preparation and anticipation? What was your experience during the delivery of your monologue? What parts do you feel went really well. What parts so you know you'd want to improve upon? Also, what was it like being an audience for your peer's monologues?
Overall I don't think I did horrible. I went over my lines over and over again and yet i was still able to mess up a tiny bit. My experience was okay i think i just overreacted . The beginning i killed it. I believe when i mentioned the lizard i got stuck and had to look at my paper. I think i could have used more practice. I really enjoyed being an audience for my peer's because it was a peek inside of how their minds work and a little piece of who they are.
Describe the beginning concept for your set design. What elements of your inspiration collage did you draw upon? What is the basic stage scene you're setting in your design? Is there a strong design concept yet it regard to style, form, texture, color, etc.?
The beginning of my set design i didn't know where I was going with it. I was having trouble with actually creating a set design even . I saw the golden Gate Bridge and i saw how green it was on the bottom so i thought of forest and i had also cut out zombies so i thought zombie sin the forest. I made sure it was all foresty and camp like I added a tent and an old campfire.
Reflect on the creative process of working from inspiration through to presenting your set design. What were the ah-ha moments of inspiration and the challenges you had to be creative to overcome? What's your overall impression of the growth of your creative muscle through the process of this project?
An ah-ha moment I had was when I was in the middle of creating my set design because I had a really hard time coming up with a sketch of my set. This was an eye opener to me because it shows that I am more hands on when it comes to things. And there are things I know I can work on when it comes to art but I thought it was a great experience to let my imagination run wild when it came to using the collage as inspiration
