Vsevlod Meyerhold and Augusto Boal are two examples of drama practitioners who were unhappy with the social conventions associated with theatre, and as a response developed new methods of actor training. The both of them wanted theatre to be accessible to all members of society, at all levels of socioeconomic status, rather than just be exclusive to the rich. They were against the ideology surrounding Stanislavski’s realism acting method and felt that audiences should be engaged with, rather than be passively entertained, and that actors should utilise mind-to-body connections. Their goal was to engage with their audiences on a greater, more complex level; however the two had differing techniques that allowed them to do so. Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed and Meyerhold’s biomechanics are both recognised as revolutionary developments within the theatrical community.
He really lets you see the beautiful things in something so dark and creepy.

The Birling Family come across as your average middle-class family; Mr Birling, a wealthy business man who owns a factory; his wife, Mrs. Birling who is a social climber and is very concerned about her appearance; Eric, Mr Birling’s son, who is quite uneasy; Sheila, Mr Birling’s daughter who is being engaged to Gerald and Gerald who is the son of one of Mr. Birling’s business rivals.

The well-known play ‘An Inspector Calls’ by J.B. Priestly is said to be a progression from ignorance to knowledge. This progression from ignorance to knowledge is not only for the characters, but for the audience as well. The Inspector brings about this knowledge by tactfully making the characters confess to the sins of their past. The characters begin being ignorant and soon learn that they should be more socially responsible and have more consideration for other people.

An Inspector Calls Essay Priestly’s main aims in writing this book are to promote the idea of socialism. At the time in which the play was set, socialism was slowly becoming more dominant but the capitalist views were still the most widely acknowledged. Priestly and other writers were appalled by the living condition of the poor, inspiring them to write plays in order to promote the idea of socialism, where the rich pay higher taxes related to the amount they earn, in order to help support the poor. This whole play shows the consequences of capitalism if it was continued, as seen by the start of the Second World War, shortly after the play ended. Writing from hindsight, Priestly implies that if the old fashioned views are carried on, events similar to World War 2 will repeat themselves.
Optical illusion and misconception are tools that are used to mask the truth and enhance a story. In “The Ways We Lie”, by Stephanie Ericsson, she touches on how individuals in society often fabricate the truth in order to achieve a good sense of life. In Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, fabricating the truth plays a prominent role in this drama and is continuously shown through the actions of Guildenstern, Claudius and Hamlet. These characters use dishonesty not only to create suspense in the play but also to create suspense in their every day lives. Guildenstern’s sympathetic needs are often confused with his sense of anger and wickedness.
Through Nowra’s play the ideas contrasting delusions and realisms are explored in a way to keep the audience in limbo. Theatrical devices have been put in place to ensure the viewers look beyond the stereotypes the mentally ill have been given in society. The play within a play adds complexity to these “normal people who have done extraordinary things, thought extraordinary thoughts.” Also the use of darkness and the burnt out theatre are important devices in distinguishing between illusion and reality. The play within a play is a device used to remind the audience that they are watching a play. The reality that the audience are watching characters rehearse the opera ‘Cosi Fan Tutte’ causes the audience to reflect, upon their own ideas about love, fidelity and whether being loyal to a political idea is more important than being loyal to a person.
Cherry seems to become more nutty when she falls for Lewis. But that’s what the audience wants to see, the normality of people turning mad because of love. Nowra is trying to cut out the fact that these people are really insane and hid it with the fact that love is what is important in this play, for people to understand that love makes you mad whether you are or not. As Julie says ‘Love is hallucinating without the
My understanding of belonging has been influenced by the way people will act just to fit into society. In the TV series Pretty Little liars the poems “Feliks Skrzyneck” and “ Ancestors” and ______________ it demonstrates belonging by showing the way people will act and the measures they would go to just to “fit in” And the extent they would go to just to ruin other people reputation and lives and relationship just so more people would like them. Pretty little liars The TV Series Pretty Little Liars is a show based on a group of teenage girls who at the start of the series they are all “losers” and don’t exactly fit in with society.
