Using "Too much punch for judy" as a stimulus.

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Too much punch for Judy In the second lesson we had to act out ?A night on the town? in the form of still images, we did this in a group of four (myself, Luke, Reece and lee). Our stimulus for this task was our own visualisation from reading the script. In the first two scenes we had a split stage, showing two men and two women getting ready for their night out, in doing so we wanted to create juxtaposition; so the audience can clearly differentiate between the two groups of people in the still image. In the third scene we had to show a still image of the two men watching the two women in the bar we (me and Reece) had to enhance our facial expressions and body language to seem attracted to the women (Luke and Lee). What we did to show that we was interested in the two girls was have our line of sight directly on them, and our bodies had to be very ?masculine? ...read more.


With our characterisation we had created two typical men looking for women to chat up to in a bar, we had a calm and smooth tone to our voices to signify this. Once the two women entered the bar, we froze with a still image that we used in the first exercise, to continue the performance I pretended to whisper in to Reece?s ear ?I?m having the one on the left.? We had a spilt stage where the two groups spoke between each other, while the other group mimed in the background. This was done so the audiences could understand what the men and women?s intentions were. Each group talked about their feelings for the person they want to ?chat-up with, we did this engage the audience as we are revealing our purposes in this performance. To end our performance Reece walked up to Lee and used a ?cheesy chat-up line? so we can finish off with a bit of comedy; the line was ?Hey babe, I?ve got the pencil; and you?ve got the sharpener! ...read more.


Then we re-wound the whole journey, including the crash, this was us using physical theatre and cross-cutting, we did this to enhance and engage the audience as it would be much more interesting to watch instead of simply just cutting back to the firs scene. When we got back to the first scene when I put the key in the ignition we stopped, and then we cut out all sound and I had a quick thought track, while the others were miming in the background, I talked about my vision and what is about to happen, we returned to the performance by Tyrell hitting me and saying ?hurry up lets go? like he did the first time, to show that this was the real world now. I suddenly said ?No! We?re not driving? then suddenly we pictured another car hitting a tree, which would have been us, this was the repellent from driving. ...read more.
