Some shows leave me speechless, or smiling like a kid, or in tears – which as exactly what I hope to be able to do for viewers someday. As I study in one of the greatest schools of arts in Israel, I always try to learn from my friends, the theatre and music majors but also the dancing and drawing majors. I appreciate the fact I study in such a creative place, surrounded by talented students, and the experience it gave me in leading big projects such as short films I 've directed and acted in, and working in teams, learning how to collaborate. Most importantly, it made me an open-minded, ready to learn and improve, person and artist. My main at the moment goal is first of all to learn as much as I can about the field of musical theatre and improve my skills as much as possible, while enjoying the art of acting and singing.
The Aristotelian element of drama known as spectacle, or what is seen onstage, is important to the development of any play or musical. Spectacle plays an influential and essential role in Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. The specific things and actions the audience sees in this play provides them with necessary information to understand the characters, storyline, and many other aspects of the play. There are numerous examples of specific things Ibsen intended for the patrons to observe throughout the course of this show. These are so significant to understanding the work, that a reader of this script can recognize them, even if he or she has never seen a production of A Doll’s House.
With regard to my specialty, the performance showed how creative decisions can make a change, for example with the actors emerging from the total darkness. This encourages one to seek for new solutions and creation of new mechanisms, which is essential for my
This essay will be exploring two of Bowell and Heap’s six elements; role and frame. With close reference to the theatre in education performance piece and the reading, this essay will critically analyse and discuss how each element was useful in the creating of the Applied theatre piece, and how it influenced our experience as a group. The element of role is best described as ‘another fundamental of theatre and central to all performance forms is the taking of a role.’ (Bowell & Heap, 2001). Being in role is when an actor plays the role of a character, adapting another form of characterization in order to deliver and address themes that are raised throughout the performance. Being out-of-role is when you remove yourself from a characterized character and essentially play the role of being yourself to the audience, but on a heightened scale, depending on
Without this skill, school would be much more difficult because without communication skills, you will fail. Finally although i was never professionally an actor, I have learned that my discourse community has taught how to channel my emotions not only in my work and on the stage but in my writing. It has taught me how to use the vocabulary needed to express my ideas and feelings on paper. My discourse community has taught me so many lessons that I will use throughout life, I’m sure I would have no learned them
Sue Monk Kidd actually wrote this realistic story on account of her personal experiences, meaning this book expresses issues that students still encounter today. Students, especially in high school, tend to be more drawn in to a book that they can connect to. In an interview with the author, she told the world her exact motives of The Secret Life of Bees. She stated, "I must tell a true story that comes out of my own depths... It will be true to life, true to the deep human pathos we all experience...
Sentence variety, for example, NPA will definitely be of use and I plan to use all sentence improvements for next semester. As a student in class I felt like I did really well. I really enjoyed the class, and learned something new every time. If I could change anything I would try to be more interactive in class and participate more. Also, I would have spent more time really looking into the different writing processes to really attack the writing style.
Drama is literature written for performance--or at least written in a style that would allow for stage performance. As a text form, drama can be thought of as story told though spoken remarks and stage directions(Kurland ,2000) .When we hear the term drama we think fun, excitement , expression of one’s self . A famous quote says that “play is not in the words, it’s in you” (Steller Adler). In the world of drama it is essential that we understand the difference between Process and Product Drama. The importance behind their differences is vital as it will help one to better able appreciate ad understand what drama is really about and what drama entails because drama is seen as much more than just movements , drama is life itself.
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
As a result of all of these workshops, I have a greater appreciation for the Arts and now understand why people like Debbie Allen are very active in keeping the Arts in our school systems around the world. How did this workshop experience differ from the previous ones? The Musical Theatre Workshop required more creative and less structured movements than the other workshops; however, the same amount of flexibility and focus on technique was required to be successful in the movements. What connections were made with the reading material? Everything that we have learned in the five workshops so far connects with the reading in theory; however, we you are actually practicing the movements, if you are not a professional dancer; you tend to be all over the place.
