Drama Report

Extracts from this document...


Drama Report During the Second/Winter term we devised a piece of drama to be presented to others. I worked in a group of 4 on a piece we created named Friendship Forest. Our play was based on a mixture of plays and films that we had come across. In this essay I will describe how we started and developed the work and I will evaluate my thoughts and instincts about my and other members of my group's performance, both in preparation and execution of the play. We gathered ideas by brainstorming in our group and we developed our ideas into sequences. One of the ideas was to divide the group in two, acting out the roles simultaneously to improve the dynamics of the play.

Split scene - To emphasise the divide between sex As we only performed in front of our class I was comfortable and confident. The main difference for me between the rehearsal and performance was the fact that we weren't allowed to vocalise our new ideas and we could just perform. The reaction from the audience was mixed; some were pleased with our performance whereas others were keen to put across their opinions. I think our performance was slightly less than successful although I think If we put more time into practising instead of brainstorming ideas and developing them, our outcome would have been more positive. I believe we each contributed a lot to the play, each coming up with their own unique ideas which would have made an outstanding play and I believe if we had slightly more time to rehearse we would have performed better on the day. ...read more.
