Improvisation - Obsession - Evaluation Phase

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

GCSE Drama Unit 2 - Improvisation - Obsession Evaluation Phase AO4 The painting to me shows a woman trying to remove the man's, who she has, just murdered, clothes. She has two daughters one of who is helping remove the clothes and the other is by the window looking to see if anyone is coming. To me this is set inside a hotel room so they have to be very careful. What the three women are doing is the same, roughly, as what is going on in the picture on the dresser behind. This painting can also show that women are in control of man and men have to do what women say or they have to face the consequences. This painting has many different meanings behind and different people many view it differently. 'The Family' has a very mysterious feel behind it and is very spooky. The painting is left very much up to the viewer's imagination. ...read more.

Middle

I think it was very effective as it is something that was completely different to anything in any of the other groups. They also did the same thing we did and showed that the painting does not have to have an evil or dark meaning. They did one scene where it was a group of kids just having a bit of a play fight. This was effective because it showed that when they were thinking about what to put in their drama they had a wider range and that they took a closer look at the painting and thought about the meanings behind it. The story of John Tanner and Rachel McLean is such a horrible, sick and twisted story. To me this story is dark and very sinister. But at the same time John tanner was excellent and was very clever at trying to cover up that he killed Rachel by writing the letter on the train, back to Nottingham, shortly after murdering Rachel, and burring her under the floorboards, at her house. ...read more.

Conclusion

The reason I think they didn't react as well is that the John and Rachel dramas in all the groups were mainly the same and didn't show different meanings like 'The Family'. The audience did understand the pieces but I feel they understood them too well!! There was a one group who instead of putting both sides to John in one scene they repeated the same scene twice but one with the evil John and one with the sweet John. I felt that this was extremely effective as no other group had thought of doing this and even though it was a very simple idea they carried it out so well. The group who did this idea was the same group that stood out for me in 'The Family' dramas too. Another effective idea was how the final scene, the murder scene, was done. One group, during the murder, used a strobe light this was really effective as it gave the scene a very eerie and dramatic feel and this kept the audience on the edge of their seats!! ?? ?? ?? ??
