Introduction

The Explorative Phase: Our aim for this workshop was to thoroughly explore the theme of conflict we did this by using many explorative devises which I will talk about in further details as I progress through the essay. Conflict was not an easy theme for me to tackle as I believe that to produce a realistic piece of drama you have to show your subject matter from as many different angles as possible, and throughout the workshop I tried my best to follow this through. Rosa Parks. To start this stage of the workshop we were played a truly inspirational song called Sister Rosa from the album Yellow Moon by The Neville Brothers; below are the lyrics: December 1, 1955, our freedom movement came alive. And because of Sister Rosa you know, we don't ride on the back of the bus no more. Sister Rosa Parks was tired one day after a hard day on her job. When all she wanted was a well deserved rest Not a scene from an angry mob. A bus driver said, "Lady, you got to get up cuz a white person wants that seat." But Miss Rosa said, "No, not no more. I'm gonna sit here and rest my feet." CHORUS Thank you Miss Rosa, you are the spark, You started our freedom movement Thank you Sister Rosa Parks. Thank you Miss Rosa you are the spark, You started our freedom movement Thank you Sister Rosa Parks. ...read more.

This showed that despite the willing and almost subjective exterior the reality of what was going on in their minds was totally the opposite. Eva 'this is an outrage, how much longer can people turn a blind eye?' Me ' I don't want to cause any trouble, well not today.' 3. This freeze frame was basically to portray the defeat of white over black and but you also see a element of guilt as you see Lauren trying to reach out to the black person but not quite being able to reach far enough to help. Lauren 'how can I strive to be right when even then I'm wrong?' Amber 'they are where they deserve to be; in the gutter' 4. This still image shows the black people on the ground this signifies them being pushed further that necessary not as individuals but as a race. It shows it has been taken one step to far. Eva & me 'Why?' Roll play * Me * Luke * Kieran * Joey * Elspeth For this we did the famous scene on the bus involving Rosa Parks. We chose to use 'mark the moment' we used this as the climax as the piece to so the utter awe of the passengers around her, half admiration half horror. To emphasise the different views on the matter we used a soundscape of thoughts finishing with Rosa shouting 'I WILL NOT MOVE!'. ...read more.

Conclusion

We used many devises in this piece of drama but the one that was most useful was thought tracking as it showed the alternative view that the main role took, it also showed other peoples views on him. We also used a 2 parallel freeze frames one showing what he is seeing and one showing him what people around him see, It was almost like a mirror effect. We used narration to add interest and variety to the piece . We regularly crossed cutted across from one to the other which made the audience unsure whether the doctor or the patient was delusional. My group also tried hot seating but it didn't work as we weren't given a clear enough insight into the characters mind to be able to answer questions in the same way he would so we chose to leave this out. Family Conflict For this area of the workshop we focussed on Romeo and Juliet. We had one reader reading out the narration at the beginning of the play and the rest of our group devised freeze frames to go with what the other person was reading. The freeze frames could also be looked upon as chorus as all the people moved together acting out what was being said. We then went on and performed a fighting scene to show the conflict and ended the piece by marking the moment. ...read more.
