All That Jazz Professional Analysis

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In our lesson today we watched a video on the performers of Chicago on Broadway and we watched them perform but we also saw behind the scenes rehearsals. We were told to look at the video and comment upon their professionalism of the actors. We did this to enable us to see what sort of industry the performing arts industry is, and how hard it is to work in.

In this analysis I will look at 3 key elements of the video, and apply them to our performances. ...read more.

Middle

The actual performance of All That Jazz had a great fluidity to it, and didn't make any constant stops. This meant that the performance was top class and good enough to grace the Broadway stage. The constant practice on the tempo of the song highlighted the significance of good, hard working rehearsal times. The second I would like to consider is the concentration of the actors. To work for the hours that they do in such an intense way taught me that our rehearsal time should be more concentrated and that we should do more work in lessons. One main difference was they didn't distract each other because they are paid to work and a poor professional attitude would just mean the sack for them. ...read more.

Conclusion

This means that the audience are focused on a properly professional performance rather than a mistake that will never come because they are so well spaced out. This is a element that our group should be developing and through a little bit of effort, this is achievable and should engage/entertain our audience. Overall I feel this was really beneficial to watch as it was great to see how the professional industry works, and has shocked me into thinking that I need to work much harder if I want to become part of this industry. ?? ?? ?? ??
