Q: What is your ARTISTIC INTENTION for your movement performance? **(Use the guidelines we discussed in class, look in the CONTENT LIBRARY)
- In my performance, I would like to challenge myself by expressing and confronting the prospect of what a ghost living in a abandoned mansion would look, and act like. This is my artistic intention because that I believe ghosts (especially one's who are in a dark abandoned castle for thousands of years.) are not really easy to perform, since they are suppose to be floating, invisible, and etc, however will express myself as a ghost by wearing dark colours.
To perform this character better, I will include all movement techniques too. (Direction, Speed, Flow, and Weight) For this performance, the direction of my character will be indirect, the speed will be slow, the weight will be light, and the flow will be free.
Q:Summarize the progress you and your group made this week.
- What has gone well so far in the planning and rehearsal process?
- What difficulties or challenges have you faced? How did you try to overcome these difficulties or challenges?
- What do you need to do next week to make sure you are ready to perform?
- During our rehearsals throughout these weeks, I think that my group and I collaborated really well together. We got the music done really fast, and we started practicing right after we finished planning the skit.
Some difficulties that I faced was finding the right pictures, and making the intro for our skit. Since we were doing a scene in a abandoned castle, I had to find creepy pictures of inner views in castles that were about hundreds of years old. For most of the pictures, I even had to photoshop things in, and photoshop things out in order to help improve on our scenes. However, I overcame this by doing some of the pictures with my groups members, and asking for some advise on what pictures should change on what time.
- Next week, I would need to finish the iMovie, and bring in black costumes so that I could show my character and use body language to let the audience know what I am acting.
