Introduction

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).

Middle

Some of the group members (me) found tragic scenes difficult to act out. They look simple but when it comes to perform them, it is hard to stay in role. I personally think that tragic genres are one of the hardest genres to act in.

This is because it is something that happens in reality and affects a lot of people. 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.
