However, Fitzgerald also shows how they still depend on men, no matter how emancipated they seem to be. Therefore, the question whether or not women were truly dependent on men, is raised. In many opportunities Fitzgerald shows the reader women were independent. One can easily see this in the parties at Gatsby’s place. During the parties there was a “great number of single girls dancing individualistically”.
What can women do to make people realize the strength and capability that we have? What can women do so that they can be remembered after all the spectators have left the arena? Men should get out of their ivory towers and should start giving women more opportunities to prove themselves. Rather than being sexist and assuming that women can 't play hockey, men need to provide more opportunities. The problem is with men, not a lack of ability or
The two pieces that I chose from the performance of Motion Flux, were Coexist Coefficient choreographed by Natalie McIntrye, and Leech choreographed by Melody Forsell. These pieces stood out to me the most because of how they made me feel. The first dance brought a sense of wonder and inspiration as I observed a new beginning, however the second dance made me feel like I had lost something and it was completely out of reach. Both dances made me feel completely different things, which is why I chose to compare them. A lot of the dances were exciting or entertaining, but these two dances made me stop and think more about the deeper meaning.
One really big change that happened during this time was the idea of gender equality. In the 1920s people were just getting into the swing of women being treated somewhat equal to men. Of course some people didn’t play along with this lifestyle, but a lifestyle it was becoming indeed. The Women’s Rights Movement started all the way in 1848. The first convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York.
Kincaid uses a metaphor to show that women need to serve man. Which shows in the quote because it talks about how a woman to let them self-have a relationship with a man. In ‘’Between The Sexes A Great Divide’’ a story written by Anna Quindlen it also shows her point of view of gender by using literary devices which are a hyperbole. Quindlen uses a hyperbole to say that there a divide between the sexes when you 're on the dance floor and it like a great shiny because it takes a while for people to start dances with each other. Quindlen writes, ‘’ I can see is that great shiny space in the middle of the dance floor where no one ever meets’’(Quindlen page 1).This show by using literary
One important relationship between Theater/Dance and its audience is how the audience and the production must work together to make a great overall experience. Sometimes, Audiences aren’t that responsive to the show on stage and that can lead to a subpar performance by the actor/dancer because there is no energy being provided by the crowd. It’s a very unique dynamic that is shown regularly in the art forms of theater and dance, how the audience can play such an integral role for how the performance turns out. In the documentary Absolute Wilson, it was evident to me that the actors talked in a more ecstatic voice when talking about the performances of the plays done in Paris or in other special venues. It wasn’t just the fact that they were performing a spectacular piece it was also that they were excited to feed off the energy of the special venues.
Doris Humphrey feels that choreographers have to be completely engrossed with his/her chosen subject matter or else the audience will not be captivated by the dance. Even if the subject matter is not very important, the choreographers have to act as if it is. There are two types of choreographers: the choreographer who uses his/her own dreams to create a piece or the independent choreographer who is told what to create. I feel Doris Humphrey did not approve of choreographers who only created pieces for the fame. Method/Evidence (30-50 words; 20 point) How (using what evidence or writing strategies) does the author support her/his main argument?
When dance is mentioned, most people think of expressing themselves and desiring to do what you love. In the film Strictly Ballroom by Baz Luhrmann, the characters experience many challenges, such as being expected to fit in. Scott Hastings is an admirable character who changes the history of dance, and goes through an impenetrable time trying to fit in. As we move along, Scott shows us the struggles of being a “strictly ballroom” dancer, how he changes throughout the film and how it’s helped us to understand the change. While everyone else follows the dance Federation steps, Scott is unique from everyone around him, and likes to express himself through non-Federation steps.
The most important contribution of the broadway from ‘’Change For Good” is that it puts young women at the center of Broadway fans. In the contrast to liabilities to focus on the middle-aged particularly on the gay men. Wolf’s observation goes against much of the conventional wisdom that women, especially the young women were ‘cultural dupes, their tastes fickle, easy, and undiscriminating, and their presence and loyalty irrelevant’ (p. 221). The revelation of the female hidden reveals the hidden scholarship were targeted audience in many Broadway shows. The scholarship represents a significant economy of American theater, performers.
The education of a males and females were alternate spheres. Women were deemed unworthy to contribute to the income of a household. Consequently, Jane and her sister’s education was diluted with foreign language, music, and dancing (JaneAusten). The teachings seem to be a form of entertainment or pleasure for the man. This idea is displayed through the Musgrove’s gatherings, in which the females would prepare by providing food, music, and dancing for the superior husband.
