    Mubin Hira PERFORMANCE TREATMENT #1 Going to my first play ever was an experience that I will always remember. Being brand new to the theatre world, I didn’t know what to expect when I walked into the grand Krannert Center. It was a different atmosphere; almost unreal. Attending Twelfth Night, or What You Will in person was an amazing experience.

To give the illusion of a kitchen and house, the actors playing Mrs. Webb and Mrs. Gibbs must pantomime a morning routine and rely on other cast members to be the walls when props are needed. Romeo and Juliet also lacks a full stage and many props. The cast members must make their actions believable through body language

    An American pantomime actor, Danny Kaye, once said that “To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” In literature, moreover, the journey can be used as an effective tool to progress the main story and imply the main themes. Through dividing the journey into the purpose, process, and result, one can see how the authors used the theme of “journey” in their stories such as “Araby,” “Young Goodman Brown,” and “A worn Path.” In purpose wise, the goals of three stories’ protagonists are all different

He argues that meaningless words are being used and that people are being lazy when they write. Orwell’s essay is a lesson on how people can improve their writing in a better way than they are now.

    1. The film Casablanca was released during World War II in 1942. Some have argued that some of the themes and plot points of the film can be read as propaganda. Do you agree or disagree? Does Casablanca have a political message? I could agree with both, the reason why i could do so was because maybe the one who had the idea of the movie was touched by what was happening in those years and felt that creating a movie within that era could be of a symbol. I also think that the director was trying to

    and some compromise. To evaluate this process, I consider our ideas as a good combination of applying non-verbal communication in an intercultural setting. However, due to the incomplete understanding of non-verbal communication, we mistook it as pantomime to some degree.
