Friday 11th March–Session Nine.
The performance went really well, there were a few hicups, for example we messed up the timing of the shadow images- but I don't think anyone noticed!
The collage looked really effective, it was lit so that it looked mysterious, and we were really proud of it! I really enjoyed seeing the other sections of the instalation in the full performance, the chorus section was really powerful, and the film worked so well, especially juxaposed with Zoe and Jack's perfomance.
I had also not heard the sound effects all the way through before, and these were amazing, in the booths they were edited so they played over the lyrics "dirty little boy" which was SO creepy to listen to. It's such a shame the audience didn't get the full effects of this.
Overall, I am so proud of our piece. I had imense fun preparing it and performing in it. I feel that what we achieved was really creative, I have never felt so artistic!
I had such a good time working with this group. This project gave me a chance to work with so many new people, people that i didn't realise were so talented and creative ( i know im overusing the word).
I also really enjoyed the subject we were working on, when I first read the play I had no concept of how much theatrical potential there was.
The other group did a piece that was more performance based than ours, which encorporated the classical theatricality of Greek Theatre. I enjoyed this piece becasue of the group managed to cobmine the clasical with the modern, using so many different methods of performance. I really liked the dance, and also the ending, the way they finished with the creation of a painting, I thought this was so origianal, and really effective.
The performance day was really interesting, not only in seing the other group's take on the play, but also in seeing how our performance evolved. This project has been so stimulating and enlightening.
