A Modern View of Feminist Criticism William Shakespeare 's "Othello” can be analyzed from a feminist perspective.This criticism focuses on relationships between genders, like the patterns of thoughts, behavior, values, enfranchisement, and power in relations between and within sexes.

Sometimes, Audiences aren’t that responsive to the show on stage and that can lead to a subpar performance by the actor/dancer because there is no energy being provided by the crowd. It’s a very unique dynamic that is shown regularly in the art forms of theater and dance, how the audience can play such an integral role for how the performance turns out. In the documentary Absolute Wilson, it was evident to me that the actors talked in a more ecstatic voice when talking about the performances of the plays done in Paris or in other special venues. It wasn’t just the fact that they were performing a spectacular piece it was also that they were excited to feed off the energy of the special venues.
