He filled his whole body with his dancing. His movements were all very placed and precise. It was like he was gliding across the stage as if there was no gravity to hold him back. He breathed though his moves while he was dancing which made them very swift and swan-like. By changing the speed of his dancing like holding a pose longer than others or doing phrases quicker it helped him to make the audience feel his emotion along with him.
You have to be very focused and you can do it with any number of people. Dance is very freeing and you don’t have to do it for sport, many people just do it for fun. Dance relies mainly on core strength but it is easier if you have all-around strength, also dance requires a lot of practice. There are also many different kinds of dance. Soccer is a game that is loved all around the world and is played by many.
The cast physically and vocally held the essence of their characters making them come alive. This aided in making the play more realistic. The cast of ‘black comedy’ obviously had good acting skills. The actor who played Clea for example, had her own personal flare which depicted the sexual appeal and mischievous nature of Clea. Also, the actor portraying Brindsley had a disorganized streak about him making the audience see how disorganized his character is.
It brought theatre to life for me. It allowed me to actually enjoy the art that much more. Sometimes theatre is portrayed as something it really isn’t. Whether it is feminine or gay, people hear that all the time. At a point in my life, I felt the same.
The female dancers are very slim and the male dancers appear to be very strong, this makes it easier for the contact work within the dance. For example, again in section two a male and female dancer are positioned centre stage. The male dancer is knelt on the floor and the female dancer sits on his knee. This shows passion as it could be seen as flirtatious/something that you would expect a couple to do. The male dancer then lifts the lady over his knee until she is standing up; this could show power as the male dancer is creating the movements for her and therefore has control.
In a deep and powerful voice. King Leonidas and his Spartans were wearing dark, red clocks which made there muscular bodies visible. They also had iron boots which dug into the ground keeping a Spartan on his feet. There razor-sharp spears were deadly and light which helped a Spartan throw at long distance targets however the most important of them all is the shield which only a true Spartan holds, no one can pierce this shield. Positioned in a cave the Spartan force had the upper hand as the Persians could only attack from the front on the other hand the Persians were in huge numbers which could over run the Spartans.
It must be hard to remember what character you are playing at a certain time. The two other actors were also very good because they always stayed in their part and wholeheartedly made their part real. I felt that they also fed off of the audience very well. The actors and actress were excellent in this play. The set design and scenic elements in this play were very well done and well developed.
Cyrano de Bergerac a Tragicomedy Zach Hartman Cyrano de Bergerac, in my opinion is a tragic comedy. It displays tragedy in many different places with both types of high and low class characters. It also displays comedy between the characters but the comedy all comes from the main character Cyrano. At the end of the story Cyrano dies in the hands of his lover who never knew until a few moments before that her cousin, the great swordsman, story writer, and storyteller, loved her the way she always wanted to be loved. Cyrano de Bergerac is a tragic comedy because it involves all of the elements and incorporates all the aspects of a tragicomedy.
God of Carnage was a great play. The use of colors to symbolize the power struggle, the art deco furniture and the symbolism behind clothes were brilliant decisions towards enhancing the whole morale of the play. The characters did a wonderful job of setting the mood and atmosphere and capturing the whole ‘I’m better than you’ idea. The play not only helped the audience see how people actually act today but, without the audience knowing, made you more aware of your surroundings and how to analyze them; a tool that will come in handy in all aspects of anyone’s
They were all rehearsed and the performance was really good. The dancers excelled in their performances. All the dancers put 110% in the dance; they all had the right facial expressions of what was going on in the dance. The dance was choreographed by the students and it was really good.
