Evaluation of Our Performance - Twelfth Night

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

We performed on the 11th November 2011 I thought our performance went really well as everything went smoothly and no problem aroused. We had an audience of approximately 13-14 members. The Sound effects and music were presented really well as they were placed on cue and had no delay. For example for the first scene the music was Carnival of Animals- Elephant and this had to play exactly when Kazim says Sir Toby Belch: "What a plague means my niece, to take the death of her brother thus? I am sure care's an enemy to life." Here Kazim was depending on me as when I start the music he steps onstage. Also the lighting went very smoothly as Shaquille and Awnit had decided to switch to control the lighting whenever the other was not on stage. ...read more.

Middle

I most enjoyed the last scene which way of Malvolio, Maria and Olivia as I thought it was hilarious and Kazim portrayed the upside of Malvolio very funny and we could clearly establish the contrast from earlier an now.

Conclusion

Things we could improve for our performance are maybe using the hall for our performance as it is a change to our regular performance and more people will come if we perform on the stage. Also for our next performance I think it would be great to maybe use actual big props as we are going kitchen sink drama we can use household furniture to make the set look homely and to establish the house. Also we can change around the roles of what each person does i.e. as I was props design perhaps someone else could take up this role and I could do Lighting this way the group is challenged are does not repeat roles which can sometime be boring. ?? ?? ?? ??

    Lyons, this was not written anywhere in the script in fact in the script, the narrator enters after the pact has been made. It was the director's choice to have this happen, and I believe it was a very good choice as it really brought across the narrator's role as fate/destiny in the play.
