Evaluation: Arbeit Macht Frei

Extracts from this document...


EVALUATION PHASE Arbeit Macht Frei The evaluations you have to make refer to the 'Arbeit Macht Frei' work covered in class. Task A In devising your piece of drama based on the 'Arbeit Macht Frei 'text, you used a variety of drama conventions: (Mask, Block, Blanket) Pick a minimum of 1 convention used in your performance and explain in detail * What the convention is? * How was it used in your drama? Give examples from your performance. * What it communicated to the audience. (You may wish to quote from the script when giving specific examples). (Script in shared area) One of the challenging parts was the limited props we had. And that we had no choice but to use them. We had 2 white masks and a blanket, we as group would have preferred 1 mask and a blanket, but there was no choice. So in the end we decided to leave 1 character prop less. ...read more.

Task E Do you think studying the theme of Oppression (people victimizing others) in drama has any relevance to you? If so, what is the relevance? All opinions must be justified. (You can use further research in books, newspapers and the internet to support your opinions further. (You can attach any research material to your work). I think Oppression was relevant.

Oppression is also hidden a lot to the public in reality and it's good that there are ways (like in plays) that people can see that it exists and there are things they can do about it. Personally I think it's a bad thing. Everyday people get hart because of it. Because it comes in so many different forms e.g. bulling, politics etc, it really is hard to avoid it. ...read more.
