I suggested that the first scene be a mimed flashback about the mother packing away and leaving with some depressing music in the background. I thought this would work well because it meant the audience would be drawn into the drama from the beginning and it would be an imaginative way to start the piece. ...read more.

Middle

We all took responsibility for the lights and our performence in our drama and came in at lunchtimes to choose the lights we needed for the movement scene and record our monologue. During the performance we worked the lightning for the scenes and asked Bandana to manage then. We were pleased because the lights came on at the right time.

Conclusion

This worked really well with the movement we chosen which was to look down at the start. My gyestures were unussual because my character was quite a nervous person I made sure that I fiddled a lot with my sleeves and did not make eye contact with the other characters when I was speaking to Julia. When my character spoke I used my hands a lot to express myself as my character was a very enthusiastic person but depressed at the same time.

  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.
