This is one of the most popular methods and involves the use of spect-actors. In this theatre, the audience is presented with a situation or scenario that involves one or more characters in it being oppressed. Then the audience, also known as spect-actors can go up onto the stage and replace one of the characters and solve the issue. If nobody is replaced then the scenario starts over again. This is very powerful because it shows the audience that they need to be the change that they want to see in the world.
Like most performances, “Kinky Boots” is highly educative and informative owing to the plot and storyline which have a different approach as opposed to most plays. As such, my choice to select “kinky Boots” as my performance of choice is influenced by the international acclaim the play has received from the time of its debut. Notably, the play has a variety of advantages owing to the level of experience of its writers, cast, and crew members. However, the show has managed to attract a large demographic because of its use of theatrics showcased in the performance. The response discusses my personal opinion of the play “Kinky Boots” which I attended in the Boston Opera House on the 11th of august.

This, paired with the lighting and sound cues and the voices of their respective designers creates a tangible idea of what work is like in the theatre. The constant stopping and starting of cues, lets the audience in on the sometimes dangerous and often tedious nature of technical rehearsals
The theatre is a type of art, which was born from communication with the gods, rituals for various cults and to entertain people in their free time. Theatre was also the place where people got a political and social education, it was also used as a place of civic and philosophical debates and had functioned as a spiritual purification. They have been designed as temples of art and they were seeking to remove their audience from everyday concerns and to send them in some virtual reality but the function of the theatre since the early beginnings is to entertain people. Theatre brings stories and performances to amuse the public and with stories it brings pleasure. This makes it an important part of life for some people and for theatre to complete its purpose, it needs space.
Brainstorming of Ideas: Our group worked particularly well together in this project. it was really interesting to work with people that I have rarely worked with in a project and seeing everybody coming up with creative and innovative ideas as well as jumping out of their comfort zones to achieve the desired outcomes. I felt that our ideas were very intertwined and we worked hard to compromise with decisions in the staging and overall plot of our piece. We began the process by brainstorming a list of issues that we were all passionate about. These included: the romanticism of mental illness (especially on social media), fake news or statistics, extreme culture shock or differences in cultural values, racism, women's rights, false accusations
After this scene, every time he tried to do the same thing, it created humour. What also makes this production more comedic is the clowns ability to remain with a straight face and act seriously, for example the stair scene where one of the clowns continues to pretend to walk up the stairs with Richard following. The use of repetition here stretches the scene out creating a long-extended piece of comedy. The scenes in the play that use repetition are best created by the clowns. The acting style and ability to release tension in the scenes, together with repetition is backed by the creative stagecraft by the director, to successfully produce a memorable
Death of a Salesman has been extremely influential in regards to theatrical performance and it has been performed by multiple different theatre groups. It has also been made into a movie, which has actors such as Dustin Hoffman as Willy Loman, John Malkovich as Biff Loman, and Kate Reid as Linda Loman. All of these actors’ performances were true to the character and were extremely realistic. It was easy for the audience to get caught up in the characters that these actors portrayed. Throughout the movie, Dustin Hoffman, John Malkovich, and Kate Reid all provided an outstanding performance by ensuring that their facial expressions, body language, and emotions always shined through all the while they were creating realistic characters that were easily believable by the audience.
Dance in public space In the context of theatre dance, choreographers have created dance art on stages to be seen by an audience. Now they are researching if dance art in public space can have the same quality, meaning and value. ‘Making Space’ is an example of this research, where they experiment with their surroundings and their relationship with the audience. By using their surroundings they redefined the space and surprised by giving ordinary objects a new meaning. If you want to define the reactions of the audience, you have to consider that the performances weren’t in the city centre so there weren’t always a lot of bystanders.
In many ways, I feel like these questions can only be answered through experience. The Secret Life of Suitcases incorporated several contemporary practices into the performance, including devising, physicality and technology. The whole piece itself was devised, based entirely on a curiosity about suitcases. The piece was also performed with a deep reliance on the physicality of the puppet and also the physicality of the puppeteers to help communicate the message of the play. Throughout the performance, the audience enjoyed seeing the many uses of technology, whether it was through the lighting or the music.
