How did I perform?
I think I performed fairly well, and I am content with my narration, personification, and acting skills as a customer in all three performances. The only slight mistake I had made in all three performances was when forgot to mention that the crane was trapped in the narration part of our third performance, in front of the third graders.
Which was my best performance and why?
In my opinion, the third and last performance was the best as a group, despite the fact that I had forgotten to mention that the crane was trapped while narrating. I felt as I had talked loudly and clearly, and also had been very enthusiastic about buying a kimono from the vender, Kenneth. Though this was not part of the actual performance, I think I had spoken loudly, clearly, and also enthusiastically when introducing the piece that we were going to present.
What were some difficulties? Solutions!
I think that as a group in general, we lacked enthusiasm and confidence. Although I am sure that everyone in our group had tried their best, I have noticed certain people to be a bit shy in front of an audience, which held us back from achieving our potential. A solution to this could have been for certain people to take practice more seriously, and therefore make our time in class more productive.
What were some achievements?
I think we had utilized our three or more techniques fairly well, those four techniques being: Narration, props, slow motion effects, and acting as objects.
Which group was successful and why?
In my opinion, Jake’s group was the most successful, mostly because of Jake’s superior interaction with the audience, that being first and third grade kids. I assume that this is due to his frequent interaction with younger children, as the people in our group were not as used to interacting with children as much as other groups were.
