All my life I always come cross seeing a one type of theater is seeing one’s of my favorite R and B musical singer at a concert and that simmered seeing a play because they both have a lot in comment like the audience, stage spaces, director, producer, and many more. Long time ago I did seen the Lion King play in New York that was really interesting and it made me feel like I was in the show with all the excitement going on like movement, dancing, singing and many more. Theater is totally different from the film and television because with all different performance, each audience response differently of how they see it in their view. Second, theater had many different things you should know when you go to see played a t the theater like stage spaces, scenery, costumes, lighting, sound, and musical. The thing I was touch by the costumes design because of the fact I like fashion, how they would match up the costumes with the story.
He acts as a bridge between the production team and the target students. The Script-Writer designs the script for the programme, he writes all the dialogue in line with the programme objectives and available research data. The producer has a numerous duties. He co-ordinates with other members of the production team. He directs performers, technical and production crew.
When skin-lad is re-enacting his fight, he would illustrate this to one audience member, making them feel nervous which would portray the realism of skin-lads monologue and ultimately shows the poignancy of its meaning. The play will start in the foyer outside the theatre, the movement of the audience members will be important as they will feel like characters within the play. Furthermore I want several different stages to be in place in the theatre; a thrust staging, an ‘in the round’ stage, the normal basic stage and finally for one scene to incorporate the audience’s seating area as a stage. The thrust staging would be ideal for the monologues that create an atmosphere while walking (Valerie); the audience at either side of the scene would have a surreal experience while the characters act as they get full vision of the character and this stage promotes a more intimate feeling between the watchers and the performers. The round staging would be ideal for Joey’s monologue as the impression we get from
It is also held for Capulet (Juliet’s father) to prove his rank by showing the generosity he has by having the party. The beginning of scene 5 starts by the entrance of the servants. The reason why Shakespeare chose to start with them was to show the audience, the scene shift from the previous scene and to get their attention. The fuss and the way the servants act with haste, shows the audience that the scene is a party. One of the features that stand out the most is the fact that they speak in prose, because the previous scene was only in verse […] Good thou, save me a piece of marchpane, and as thou loves me, let the porter let in Susan Grindstone and Nell.
Shakespeare On Trial - Critical Review In a well-rehearsed and entertaining performance, the team from Shakespeare On Trial (Sam, Bella and Paul) present a unique play which contrasts and compares various interpretations within William Shakespeare’s works. The performance focused on Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet”. The entire performance was based on talk shows which demonstrated the different interpretations of Shakespeare’s works, through discussions, arguments and brief scenes. The performance allows the audience to look past their own opinions of Macbeth or Shakespeare, and enables them to appreciate different interpretations of the plays; enhancing their understanding. Despite the absence of special lighting, costumes or a large troupe, the team was able to present a captivating performance which kept the audience entertained from beginning to end.
These selections are made through the script or playwright among each actor within the play. Diction also has a great effect on the characters by announcing and exhibiting their very own personality. Aristotle requires these six main elements to create a perfect
For this brief we were encouraged to pin point what our ‘strengths’ we have in performing, so for my initial ideas I went towards singing and acting. Once I had completed my research and made my final pitch it became clear that I would try to include all three aspects of performing arts to really try to impress. My research into possible/ideal venues, proved difficult to find in the local area, so I found mine in London… Our production company was invited to perform a Cabaret or Variety Act to an adult audience in a local venue. Each performance had to be approximately
That day, I decided that I would fervently chase my dreams of becoming a lawyer. Back in college, I engaged in numerous activities. I was especially interested in theatre and projects that have social causes attached. For instance, I co- founded a theatre organization called the Unheard Voices that produced plays that are often not performed. The focus is on minority play writers as well as actors; the goal; to let their unheard voices finally be heard.
This essay will deal with the truth in terms of it being the message the playwright is trying to convey to the audience, and how many playwrights choose to abandon the realms of realistic theatre in order to portray this message. ‘The Glass Menagerie’ by Tennessee Williams is set in a small apartment in St Louis in 1937, and follows the story of a rather eccentric working class family called the Wingfields. Williams shies from following realistic theatre from the start, by introducing the play through Tom who acts as both a central character and as a narrator. Williams appears to speak through Tom to admit to the audience that the play would not be following the normal conventions of theatre, but instead would be portrayed as a memory, Tom’s memory, and so makes no pretence that the play will hold realism. He goes as far to say he gives ‘the truth in the appearance of an illusion’, insinuating that if the audience understands that the play is looking back into the past from Tom’s memory in the future, aided by Tom’s narration, they will better understand the significance of the events that took place and their impact.
Through body, voice, movement space I express the ideas and concepts of the play within historical context and the plays contexts. In the play I play Child 3, Midwife, Male duo, Manager, factory hand, and female manager as well as being part of the chorus which was a huge part of our play. In this statement of intent I’ll express the sense of characterization I wanted to have and talk about each character and how I used them to express our main themes through drama techniques. I’ll also talk about how chorus is used to express important themes and how we have to be on stage focused at all times. Male Duo: Role, Time, Place- I play one of the men in Male Duo with mackenzie.
