It cleverly used a spoken letter system to help give the audience a view of the world outside of the apartment, but much more could have been done with that element. The poor exposition was obvious in a few scenes during the play, and it is a shame because there were places where exposition was masterfully and naturally incorporated into the dialogue. Its multiple storylines allow for a dynamic plot, but this also means that some storylines are very hit or miss, causing some members of the audience, including myself, to lose interest in a couple of scenes. Lost In Yonkers’ greatest strength is also it’s greatest weakness, and the rough patches of the play can really stick out like a sore thumb, but, if the viewer can find a character that they can engage with, the play is enjoyable and
Elegy for Young American is a very jarring and powerful piece of music. It can relate to a few pieces of art. One of the pieces is a black and white piece where up close, a lot is going on and you can see very minor details that are important, but in the whole piece offer very little. The art gives you an uneasy anticipatory feeling just like the music does. Another piece of art that can relate to Elegy is the praying women with the rosary, even though the women is praying to win the lottery and the piece of music isn’t about that it can relate, because while the piece is going on you’re hoping and praying that there will be some kind of relief to all the dissonance and raw texture the piece provides.
The song “Love Is Not Over” reminds me of Othello because it talks about a relationship that has gone to ruin. This song is a perfect reflection of the relationship of Othello and Desdemona because it’s a relationship that was at first happy but ended up being ruined. The lyrics, “why are you getting farther away? So far that I can’t reach you? Tell me why, you’re so far away, why can’t you see me in your eyes anymore?” Which can relate to the theme of betrayal or heartbreak?
Instead, they were met with dancers in rustic attire, a far cry from usual ballet scenes, and dancing in awkward movements and clumsy-like feet. As a musician, I have heard many great things about Stravinsky, yet I could not understand how this jarring piece of music could become famous until I had to study it for my music lessons. Flipping through the pages, I faced what I expected; running notes up and down the page with no meaning, enough to make me sleepy. I thought to myself, this would make me sleepier than a sedative.
Jazz is a type of music that is improvised. Each instrument in the band will get a mini solo that they improv to show off their skills. The swinging rhythms and varying tempos tell the story of the composer. Music from the Harlem Renaissance tells the stories of those who lived through it, and continues to inspire people today. History is an important subject to learn, because of the mistakes humanity has made.
Secret in the Wings was a very interesting show. I left the play utterly confused on the overall plot of the show and how its individual parts fit together, but I understood each of the individual parts clearly. The individual fairytales were wonderfully told and held a certain childlike charm. Many of the fairytales were dark and sort of melancholy, but the show never retreated into darkness. It had an airy and light feel that brought attention to the grim parts of the fairytales but never allowed it to be its focus.
In The Monkey’s Fiddle the story shows the reader how when you lie the truth will inevitably be exposed. Within the story it did take awhile for the truth to emerge, but when it did it was brought on by an onslaught of emotion of fatigue from dancing. The dancing was a reaction to the walt that Monkey had played, thus causing himself to walk away guilt free. Within the second text, The secret power of music education the purpose of the text is to get across the understanding that music progresses people not only academically, but emotionally, and socially. People from hundreds of years ago understood that the power of music is ceaseless, but now the evidence is being brought to the surface.
16). The dancers maintain calmness throughout their dancing by staying focus, but also by letting the music flow within their bodies. With all the flamboyant movements, the dancers have this sort of style that is flashy in addition. This is admirable because the dancers could be portrayed as professionals due to how they maintain the balance between the music beats, movements, and guiding their partners, if not solo. In a way, the Lindy Hop is all about the art of expressionism.
By watching Fordham’s adaptational production of Magnolia, a play by Regina Taylor, before reading it, helped me understand the play in a comprehensive way. The elements provided by the designing, lighting, set, props, cues and emotional intensity the actors portrayed shed an all-embracing experience to the script. The outcome of the production did the play justice. Yet, the plotline was somehow arduous to follow in terms of the plot details and in identifying each the characters though the actors portrayed their characters quite individualistically. At the beginning,, the characters were singing all together, blacks and whites, to the tunes of “The Times They Are A-Changin” by Bob Dylan, setting the tone that times were changing, particularly
However, there is some clash in my belief of emotions and their ability to guide one towards virtue. One of my personal truth is that emotions should play a role, not the entire role, in decision making. If there is no deeper meaning, such as economics reasons, why do something that you hate for something that you love? The way I decide what I hate and love is based off my emotions. When I play jazz or skate on the ice, I feel liberated and dare say happy.
Bill T. Jones’s Still/Here is about the human feelings and they are expressed through high formal structures. I think this choreography is abstract and it focuses on the gestures that Jones’s is dancing to. One of the examples is when one of the dancers strikes up and uses a “game-playing” technique in the workshops. When the singer Odeta is heard on the tape she filters some selective texts from the workshop that the composer Frazelle has set into the art songs with a “spiritual” feeling. For most of classical dance lovers these songs have their own beauty and they can feel the movements and feeling about these dancers something I can not feel because I do not like these type of songs/dance but I can say that it gave me some type of idea about what was going on thanks to Jones’s when he was asking them what they were feeling even thought there was no music just movements but I was able to recognize some feelings.

Natural hair has a beautiful texture that makes African American women diversed. The hair texture varies from wavy curls to tight curls. When natural hair is treated, it has a natural shine and relaxed hair cannot do. It’s texture is very soft and moisturized unlike relaxed hair. Relaxed hair is a chemical that is put into the hair to make it straight and can cause damage to the hair.
I think the song incorporates so many complex musical elements, and creates a sense of drama and theatre, unique solely to it. Not only do I think the creature would relate to the theatrical components of the song, I think he would also relate to the protagonist’s tortured sensibilities. Another thing that would make this song great for the creature’s education is the fact that its meaning was never clearly defined by Freddie Mercury or any of the other members of Queen, yet the song means so much to so many, and I think that could show the creature the value of interpretation and
In my small hometown, this is not an opportunity I currently have. I believe dance is one of the best ways to showcase your self-expression and creative expression. It never ceases to amaze me how performing or watching a performance can make time and the outside world disappear. In my free time at USC, I would love to take ballroom classes as another outlet for creative expression. Dance intrigues me because it combines emotion, passion, connection, and music, allowing the performer to tell
