This showcased the anger of this burden that conveys the Scarlett Letter theme. The dance also had elements of ballet structures and movements. For example, the dancers used piqués to travel and were in first position with contracting their upper body. The body used elements of ballet and modern styles that made the dance unique and showed this combination of these styles to convey the dances
Just as in many other different styles of dance, each individual person in tap dancing may have a unique style that will distinguish one from another. In the film, the character speak about the different styles and how they would exchange certain moves from other dancers, or that they would simply steal a move from another dancer. The dancers often later develop their own style and creativity by modifying other moves that they have acquired, or simply completely making it up from scratch on their own. The film also exposes the difference between individualistic freestyle tap dancing and commercial choreography tap dancing. In the individual freestyle, the dancer is free to use any move that her or she would desire, but in commercial dancing, dancers must follow the routine and dance in a certain fashion that fits the needs of the director.
Medea: The River Runs Backwards Medea: The River Runs Backwards, performed by the actors of Zen Zen Zo, explores the use of dance, interactive programs, contemporary performances and song. All of which act as fundamental components to convey the real life emotions of Euripides primeval Greek Theatre tragedy, Medea. It is through the incorporation of the dramatic languages such as roles and relationships, space and mood that the primary themes are highlighted to the audience. Voice and movement and stage craft also allow the audience to be challenged while simultaneously celebrating life through the dramatic meaning, which becomes prevailing over the course of the performance. Dramatic irony played a vital role in the performance execution as it generated suspense and curiosity, involved the audience, established a personal connection and triggered strong emotions.
These elements were shown through body, energy, action, time and space. For instance, the dancers in the beginning were using their bodies to show that they were confident. The character’s head was up, chest out and back arched, as they moved to show their feelings. Likewise, the energy aspect of the dancing was shown through the explosiveness of the movements. The dancers were observed to be full of energy which showed through their movements and dancing.
Throughout the world we have incidents happening that make it on tv, radio or even billboards. At times, even incidents that happened in the past are brought up such as the terrifying story of the notable dictator Adolf Hitler or bullying around the world. All these incidents have many people debating, suffering, and uncompromising leadership, but what does it feel like getting hurt and losing freedom? Dictators and bullies enjoy taking people’s freedom away and use manipulation/intimidation to compel their victims to do their wills, so dictators/bullies make it harsh for them. However, this doesn’t mean that dictators and bullies are identical.
Power in House, M.D. House, M.D. is a very interesting show when it comes to power due to the many different character types and the hierarchy of workplace power. There’s many different layers going on and looking at where the power is and what types of powers there are is amusing. In terms of gender and power, I think that the writers and producers have stuck with the societal stereotype of men being the more powerful characters.
The film also illustrated that the way in which you acted towards other people contributed to the overall suspicion of somebody. For instance, one scene depicted a woman as being rude or annoying after the woman had slapped and kicked out her lover for trying to kiss her. Rear Window does an excellent job metaphorical speaking, in providing scenes that portray some of the goals of the Cold War Strategy such as to cause fear and paranoia among the nation. The film accurately displays
Both these videos were very informational and eye opening to the issues of male masculinity and “women’s issues”. Women are harassed, abused, and raped every day by men and instead of this being a men’s issue for doing this to women, it is seen as a women’s issue. Questions are asked like “What was she wearing?”, “Why was she with those men?”, “What was she doing out so late?”. Women are blamed for what is done to them. This is completely wrong for our society to even
The best way to describe the intretric movment of a capoeirista is to say capoeira is “an exchange of movement of attack and defense in a constant flow while observing rituals and proper manners of the art(CIH).” The attack and defense movement to people who are not familiar with the dance style would believe that the two capoeristas were fighting one another, this brought a few issues with the government as time progressed. “It was resembled a fight disguised a strange form of dance because its powerful strokes were strong enough to inflict serious bodily harm or even kill a person(CCC).” But much like any dance style, the performers respect one another, when the dance was first created, it wasn’t made to harm one another, but the common enemy of slave masters and the milita would attack them for practicing capoeira or
Curley develops the theme by trying to hide that he is short by acting more intimidating toward his other fellow workers.“His arms gradually bent at the elbows and his hand closed into fists. He stiffened and went into a slight crouch” (Steinbeck 28). Curley is trying to act more powerful by showing that he is not scared to go in a fight. He knows that if he beats someone that is bigger than him he will be praised for but if he loses a fight, everyone will only tell the bigger guy to pick a fight with someone his own size. Because of this, he shows a strength of intimidation and power toward others.
