Evaluation Of Work In Progress - Blue Remembered Hills

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Jessica Lovick-Earle Miss. Dukes Drama 7th Febraury 2008 Evaluation Of WORK IN PROGRESS For the past term and a half I have been studying Blue Remembered Hills as part of my Drama Coursework and a couple of weeks ago I performed an extract from the play with three fellow students. I will be writing about my Work In Progress and how well we worked together as a group to make our performance successful. To do this I will be focusing on the rehearsal process and the final performance. The Rehearsals. The rehearsals went very well, with steady progress throughout each session. The main strengths were the whole groups ability to pick up words, stage directions and changes quickly, for example when we decided to use a domino effect for our entrance. This effect was put in close to the end of our whole rehearsal process but we never had any problems with it and no one forgot it either. ...read more.

Middle

I don't feel there was a directors role because we all had ideas and were able to give each other advice on their character build up. I felt I was able to help the group improve practise by asking for line reruns and workshops to improve our overall characters. My main weakness was character analysis (as above) mainly because, as a group, we didn't do enough character analysis and this could have helped me. I feel my contribution benefited the rehearsal process because I could keep the group focused on a task and I was a good team player. I fell I could have helped others in my group more without feeling I was going to offend them because it affects the whole group dynamics if one person is unsure and it shouldn't have to be a hindrance. The demands of working in a group are to not mess around or waste time, because you have to put as much effort in as your group members otherwise it isn't fair, and you are putting the whole group in jeopardy and therefore are not able to make a satisfactory performance. ...read more.

Conclusion

a seven year old because instead of sitting I would squat, or I would fold my arms to show stroppiness when someone does something I don't like; My facial expressions suited the mood I was in or the situation that was happening, like when the atmosphere dropped when everyone looked at the squirrel in guilt I changed my facial expression to look uncomfortable or guilty; My gestures were large and clumsy like that of a child like when we were trying to get the squirrel out of the tree I would wave my stick or hurl stones at it; And my interactions with others on stage were that of a higher status character and sometimes very nasty because I was a bully and carried the higher status, likely after my fight with John I stuck my tongue out at him and made other nasty gestures towards him. Overall I felt that my performance and our overall work in progress was a success and we worked very well as a group to make our performance successful. ...read more.

    I will stop rocking Dinah to show that I have something else important to talk about so therefore I forget about Dinah. This shows Angela's personality - selfishness and being self centred.

    in a very high, and excited whisper. I would shake my head as I say that mind and I do that pretty absentmindedly. I would also tuck my legs in, as if I would be listening to a story and shuffle towards Willie, hugging my knees.

  1. Theatre of the Absurd: The Bald Prima Donna - Evaluation

    I think the actors' role-play was effective because you could clearly see the boredom in their expressions, and their projection and diction had improved in this scene. I think we should have lengthened this scene so the conversation, in the same way Ionesco's conversations would go on for a long time, would emphasise their bland and pointless married life.
