I will utilize Taiji because it is slow form of dance which will be useful for the expression of picture bride experience of long distance journey and deep concern to uncertain future. I will finalize my performance with Chang quan dance. The final chapter intends to imply the meeting of the bride and groom and their upcoming future. As I described earlier, I could feel hope or positive future as each person was not alone anymore and formed a family. This emotion or scenery can be expressed with Chang Quan dance most adequately as the movements of the dance are strict and disciplined, from which I will draw the image of their forward movement for bright future in the foreign
The image of the beautiful and caring mother has been celebrated since the Madonna and Child. Being seen as the pinnacle of feminine virtue, it has been used as a way to portray women in a positive and moral light. The self-portrait often shows the attributes of the painter that they wish to be seen. The self-portrait painter presents themselves to the audience. When a mother paints a self-portrait with her daughter she establishes and defines herself by her daughter.
For example, in the song, “At The Ballet”, after the chorus, it would get quiet and the lights would focus on the characters singing, and the song would turn from a happy song to a sad song, where the characters started talking about hardships. Then, when they focused on the ballet, their happy place, the lights would turn from blue to yellow again and light up the stage again. This gave tone to the songs and made them more interesting. Also, in the song, “The Music and the Mirror”, they use lighting to show Cassie’s sadness and desire to just be a dancer. The lighting and the music help tell how characters feel throughout the
In literature, colors are often used to create a deeper meaning of a book. In The Great Gatsby, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, the analysis of color can influence the meaning of the story and help create a deeper understanding of the characters. One color mentioned is the color yellow. One example of the color yellow is its portrayal through two girls wearing yellow dresses at one of Jay Gatsby’s parties. The girls and their yellow dresses are used to predict happiness, yet are also used to predict caution.
There are several reoccurring brush strokes and a limited amount of color which create a great mix of warm and cool tones. If you look to the top left of the portrait you should notice a diagonal stroke that makes its way through the whole piece. The painting centers on the model’s eye to create an emotional connection. The line work in this painting is used to outline the entire scene. The lines in the background all seem to fan out but point in towards to model forcing you to focus on her being the center of attention.
The poet has shown how easily influenced children are and how they strive to be like their elders by using shoes as a representation and symbol for different lifestyles. “My little sister likes to try my shoes, to strut in them…” This line shows to the reader that this child not only admires, but idolizes her elder sister and is deciding to follow her behaviour and her choices. The fact that she not only likes to try on her elder sisters “shoes” but to also strut in them represents how the child wishes to draw attention to herself and is trying to seek the attention and approval of her elder sister. This shows that this young juvenile is easily influenced by even the most petty and minuscule choices and decisions that her sibling had made. “She says they fit her perfectly, but wobbles on their high heels,
Motivated by an experience in her youth, she wrote a song about when her mother stitched together a coat for her to wear from pieces of rags they had been given and the other kids laughing at her. As a result, of this experience Parton’s purpose is to change her audiences’ mindset to realize that “One is only poor, only if they choose to be” (50-51) and can change the perception of what evokes a sense of richness. In this song, she is effective in using authority, goodwill and common ground, several categories of ethos, to evoke a connection with her listeners that may have had a similar experience. With regards to this song, Parton invented or created her authority in her song in her first verse. With this line, “Back to the seasons of my youth” (Parton 3) she is telling her audience that this is a song about an event that happened in her youth.
This is when you don’t want totell an unpleasant truth, or lie rather than not telling the whole truth or lying. An exampleof this is when Hanna was entering into a talent show to try and get some money for herand her mom. During the scene the dance instructor that was helping Hanna knew shewasn’t a good dancer. This is when she saw Emily dancing and tried having Emily giveHanna pointers on her dancing. When Emily was dancing the dance instructor was
It has been proven as a viable and beneficial way of treating and over time healing young children. One of the many advantages of participating in art therapy is “Art created within the context of a therapeutic relationship is intended to help young clients not only to engage in self-exploration, it also involves purposeful meaning-making through specific art making” (Malchiodi). It can sometimes be very difficult for a child to articulate their opinions but with the aid of art therapy they have the tools and guidance to express themselves in the way that they want to. Even in children with illnesses and disorders such as ADHD and autism art therapy has been proven to be beneficial both mentally and scholastically. It is described in the article How Art Therapy Tames Impulsivity, Distractibility, and Anxiety that “Art therapy uses the processes of drawing, painting, and sculpting to help children address emotional problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress, and increase self-awareness” (Nelson).
The spectacle left me hanging my jaw, trying to comprehend what just happened. The songs and dances were particularly enjoyable and touching. The characters were relatable, and the message was an important one. My only critique would be that their choice to make Cinderella choose her destiny by leaving her shoe with the Prince, made the plot very predictable and unexciting near the end. When the Prince finds the girl whom the shoe fits it is meant to be a wonderful touching moment, however I was simply left wondering why she couldn’t have revealed her identity at her second meeting with the Prince.
