FINAL PERFORMANCE (4) We will also be included our found text excerise. About people giving into tempation of Fast food when you want to be healthy. We have the idea of creating a workout and then I will enter reading the chip shop menu changing peoples minds. The plasic suregoy performance will also be going in our final performance which ive wrote about on a different pin.
FINAL PERFORMANCE (3) We will also be talking about Dating website, and making a joke out of them. We will be focusing on one inpericiual 'Tinder' We have the idea when Laura reads out a name, one of us will then decided the man using DV8 hand techniques. Within Tinder, if you don't like someone you swipe left and right if you do. We have the idea, so when Laura disagrees with them she will swipe and we will go that way too.
FINAL PERFORMANCE (2) We have an idea of doing a modelling school which included learning about pouting, posing and walking. We will be adding text and physical movement showing the contrast between what models are supposed to be betrayed as and then taking the mick of the whole idea.
FINAL PERFORMANCE (1) As a group, we decided we are going to do sketches which will merged into a performance . We like the idea of a collage. Our theme is taking the mick out of how media publishes women on how they look. We have decided our stage is going to be a catwalk and each sketch will take place on it.
REVIEW OF CLOUDCUCKOOLANDERS BY LAPELLE'S FACTORY (3) One scene which i liked was the 'women interrogation'The way the camera was angled it look the women was getting her head forced into a bucket of water to get information out of her when actually seeing it not through the camera she was doing it too herself. It was so effective and well thought out.
REVIEW OF CLOUDCUCKOOLANDERS BY LAPELLE'S FACTORY (2) One of my favourite moment in this performance was the use of camera. They recorded pieces that reflected onto the back wall so everyone could see, not only that there was scence where everything was more effective because it was so close up.
REVIEW OF CLOUDCUCKOOLANDERS BY LAPELLE'S FACTORY (1) When we first walked into the room where the performance was happening, I noticed that the actors were filming us. At the beginning, i thought it was a bit freaky but as the performance went on they handed out pop-corn, blankets to create a 'Movie night'. I really enjoy this performance as they would act like two characters, one being themselves asking 'if they've set the vibe' and also acting as a character out of films.
I found this on the internet the other day and thought this would be a great thing to include in our performance. I don't agree with what it's saying but it shows that size 6-8 women feel the same way as what bigger women do. There's no right or wrong size in this world, so stop saying there is.
FOUND TEXT We had to bring in a list or script to work with today, I brought in a chip shop menu and our group came up with a brilliant idea. All our items we brought in were related to food, Healthy and fat food. We created a piece where i read out the menu and everyone else was exercising being healthy but in the end, give in too temptation.
MEANINGFUL OBJECT (2) Emma brought in a hat from her first concert, Alice brought a picture of her dog and Laura brought in her childhood doll Fizz. We got the idea of us only speaking when we had the hat, but for Emma it was more a chase to receive the hat. Through this exercise, i found at first it was hard to get idea all together but once we start creating and trying different movement i believe we create a good performance.
MEANINGFUL OBJECT (1) We were asked to bring in something which had meaning and was important to ourselves. Unfortunately last year i lost my Great-Grandmother and while sorting out her stuff, i came along this beautiful Broach. Within the lesson, we explained why our items where important to us and created a piece within a small group about our items. Continued on other pin..
VIEWPOINTS (3) This is a great exercise to get an 'Understanding of space, story, shape, time, emotion and movement as it relates to the development of their performance.' Anne Bogart. The majority of the time in this exercise, i was walking around the space in a slow speed tapping out a beat on my leg. It was nice as many people notice me doing this and joined in. Continued on other pin.
VIEWPOINTS (2) Today we learnt about Anne Bogart Viewpoints. Within Viewpoints, your movements are strictly directed in a grid. You can range your movement from a quick speed or to a more slower speed. Your aloud to make noises and add text along with making adjustments to your height. Continued on other pin..
VIEWPOINTS (1) Anne Bogart and Tina Landau. Belief in non-hierarchial and the use of 'real time' activities which were arrived at through game-like structures or task-oriented activities. In improvisations, each participant had the same power in the creation of an event' (Bogart & Landau: 4)
