We had to listen to a song by prince and had to take bits and parts of it to make still images that tell a lot. Pg3 The first stimulus Planet earth song At first we sat down and we had to listen to some lyrics from a song called "planet earth" by prince. We were also given some lyrics to the song and we listened to the song again but this time we were the lyrics to understand what the song is all about. The whole group had to do a still image about discrimination on a stage and when we did it if my drama teacher told me to do a monologue I would have said: Why why why did this have ...read more.

Middle

What we did was to think of an idea to re-enact what happened in the pictures we where given, so we had an idea that black people can go to one side of the stage and white people can go to the other and we chose one of our classes mates to sit in the middle of both groups to act as if she was Elizabeth. Towela acted as Elizabeth and she had to say a couple of words to start of the scene, then two white students go in and see her and they call their head master and he says something and then the black group of people come and they all start fighting the white people, so that they could have the same rights as them. While of this is happening we will be cross cutting to two news reporters one black and one white, they would be saying what is happening but in their own point of views but one would be saying what is happening properly but the other one would be saying bad things about the black students like they don't belong here at all Pg6 what are they doing this is not allowed they are breaking the law. ...read more.

Conclusion

important parts in our short tableaux and we could also use cross cutting to do all our short tableaux we as a whole group have done. I think if I put in a production and our tableaux would be introduction to our main show about discrimination and the other things that we were doing like the gangster scene, Margaret Thatcher, Rosa parks and more. I could use different coloured lighting like red meaning blood (death) and green for peace. This is a diagram of how it would from the start to the end: Start pg9 End of the show Pg12 Evaluation (towela) I think that towela did a good job in her role as Elizabeth but she could have improved it by showing more anger and aggression in her character. She could have tried to elevate her voice so that it can be heard but she did a job in the short little time she was given to do it. Evaluation (Bruce) Bruce did he part really good he even tried to do the martin Luther king voice for him to be intact with his character and improved it a little more by really elevating his voice to the audience. ...read more.
