Drama Portfolio

Extracts from this document...


Drama Portfolio When I entered the stimulus room my initial reactions were that it had been created in a way that it made you think about what was going on within each section of the room. For example none of the objects were straightforward and simple to figure out. A lot of the items were symbolic and had multiple meanings such as the mirror in the past section could mean a change of appearance or reflecting on the past.

However the mirror could have another meaning such as this person reflecting on the past, and what has happened previously. Another large railway card was placed in this section, but this one reading "Destination: to meet my first born" This could be a theme on pregnancy, symbolising that it is a journey and that the birth of a child is the end. Other objects in this section include newspapers stuck to the wall, telling of crimes and rapes. This could be to symbolise again that ...read more.

  1. Year 11 Portfolio on Homelessness

    From this, I learnt that my character was engaged and was just moving into the area so I did not really know Anne Smith. The responses of the other characters were mixed as some thought that she should be moved away, and some thought that she should be able to choose where she lived.

  2. Our stimulus for these Dramas was the play "a legal weapon" by Mark Wheeller.

    I think that it is important even when doing a very fast scene to talk steadily to make it easy to follow and understand. This is what I thought of jazz as a character and what people around her though of her.

  1. Final Cargo - Drama portfolio

    We needed to show a good line from the play that portrayed a general adaptation of the character. We then got into groups with people that had the same character as each other and took it in turns to use our body language to show how our character would say this line.

    but those who aren't, and are what we are looking at under the title "Oppressed" have almost opposite lives to us. This was good preparation for us to get in-role for the other tasks we were going to complete. I will comment on this exercise more in the Development Phase.

    Groups For the first piece I worked with the following people: Alain Branson Stuart Mulrany Chris Jones Hussian Kerian For the second piece, we decided to split up and work with different. The main reason for this was to keep all the drama fresh with fresh ideas.

  1. Module 3 drama portfolio

    Although we had problems in devising our piece I think we all learned a valuable lesson in team work. However as a group we didn't work very well together as we found it hard to stay motivated and we encountered a lot of problems for practising the performance as certain people weren't always able to do so.

  2. Holocaust drama stimulus

    When we were thinking about being a Jewish person it made me feel miserable. People who were Jewish knew they were going to die one day or another, they were just waiting for their life to be taken by one of the heartless Germans, and living like this everyday with such a thought must have been horrific.
