Drama Storytelling Unit Reflection
How did I perform?
I think I performed fairly well throughout the three performances. I was somehow able to express out my characters and I think I was successful at completely changing the character from the original one (meaning myself). I also was able to cooperate with my teammates very well, and the whole process from the beginning went extremely smooth. Overall the performances were all very great.
Which was my best performance and why?
I think my best performance was the second one in the 1S classroom. I think so because we never had to struggle while the performance and we were smoothly going on without stopping until the end. There were definitely improvements made between the first and the second. We were able to be confident with ourselves and keep trying our best. Also I saw most audiences smile and laugh at the end with my second performance. I think that means they have enjoyed the performance.
What were some difficulties? Are there solutions for them?
There were also certainly things to improve on. The biggest difficulty was how short the time was for me to put on and take off props. Sometimes I was not able to change in time and it just looked weird from the audience. This is obviously not a good thing. So as a solution, if I was to use props, I will choose small ones – ones that will be easy for me to wear in a short amount of time.
What were some achievements?
My greatest achievement was the fact that I was able to maintain courage and eager to make the audience happy. I think this is important as an actor because if you forget to keep some sorts of feeling in yourself, that tells me that your act will have no feelings in it and it will be extremely boring. So I consider keeping feelings inside yourself while acting is important.
Which group was successful and why?
I think Jake, Oliver, and Harrison‘s group was successful because it was entertaining and I was able to really laugh from my heart. This group’s performance was very extraordinary. Great job for them!
