Drama Evaluation - Mountain Language

Extracts from this document...


Drama Evaluation Mountain Language In the first task we had to act out a high and low status in pairs. I choose to be a low status person because it was easier for me to act than a high status person. A high status person needs to be loud and confident and I don't think I would be loud enough. A low status person needs to be quiet and scared and I can be that. We decided to choose an sc´┐Żne with a maid and Hollywood star in it. I was the maid and my partner was the Hollywood star.

In the next assignment we had to do a group image of a modern city. The teacher told us what to do like the market place, protesters and religious fanatics and so on.

The city people were posh and the villagers had a farmer's accent. We had to show the differences between cities and villagers. We set two scenes. The villagers were in different levels, doing different jobs. The city people were having a tea party and complaining about the villagers. We had 4 split scenes than we used choral speaking where you all say something together and we used synchronised movement where you all do the same thing together. Life in the city and the country was the same because they were both complaining about each other, how they were lazy and did no work. Life in the city and the country was different because villagers have to have a permit to visit the city but city people can walk into the village anytime they want. ...read more.
