In continuing with last week's lessons, we will be spending our class time viewing and discussing contemporary works of theatre and their impact on audiences. This content meets the following standard, which has been identified as our remaining “essential learning requirement” for the semester:
In your journal (#5), compare and contrast the two performances from last week. How are they similar; how are they dissimilar? Both in terms of production elements and ways of performing as well as thematic content. As a theatrical artist yourself, what production inspires you more? What would you have enjoyed being a part of as an audience, performer, or designer? (Full page journal)
Last week you watched a performance that used puppetry as its primary medium; we will continue with that medium today. Watch the following piece of theatre from the same devising company: https://vimeo.com/228109659?fbclid=IwAR1iRbEdQz-li5N-WLQmB5beXhD_X94Hmk11PSfKeZMSWuQy9qdq42uCWbM .
WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY, FRIDAY:
Use these days to catch up on all journal entries and submit your journals to www.turnitin.com by midnight on Friday.
Optional, because it costs money to rent (but highly encouraged if you are able to): Watch the following documentary, Dangerous Acts Starring the Unstable Elements of Belarus.
The Final Socratic Seminar about the contemporary works of theatre that we viewed the past two weeks will take place on Tuesday, 9th at 1:00pm via Zoom. If you cannot attend, please email me.
Even though this is the Final (due to seniors in the course), there will still be class meetings and information (until school closes on June 23rd) for all junior students who will be HL Theatre students next year.
