Drama- Gene Kelly

 

He didn’t use the umbrella as we use always, but he used it for showing how he feels. He looked very happy, and enjoyful in the rain. I think rhythms were used in the tap dance the most. His expression was very enthusiastic, and it made the song very interesting and fun! He used the space very widely!!!

Drama speech

6C Drama: Given Topic Speeches from YIS Arts on Vimeo.

This is my second speech.

My first speech is on here. My first speech’s topic was volleyball. I think the volume was ok, but maybe the projection of the voice was a bit bad. My posture was bad because I moved a lot. We were not allowed to use palm cards so I couldn’t remember. Also, there was a lot of hand gestures, and I didn’t really use facial expression so it didn’t make the audience enjoy because I didn’t smile…

The second speech’s topic was assigned and it was an important person in your life. I chose my cousins whos names are Sara, and Lei. I thought my speech structure wasn’t organised so it was hard to understand. Although we had palm cards, my speech didn’t make sense. Also my posture was bad, and I didn’t use hand gesture and facial expressions.

 

I think my best speech was my first one because I talked quite loud, and I remembered most of my speech. I had a little more hand gestures compared to the second one, and we didn’t have palm cards so the only place I had to look was the audience.

I should improve on my facial expression, and try to be more enthusiastic when doing a speech so the audience can enjoy listening to my speech, and not being bored. Also, I should improve to not moving a lot.

Another speech which was captivating was Grace‘s speech because she  had a very good quote, and also her voice was clear and projective. She didn’t speek fast but not slow. It was very east to understand.

 

 

 

 

 

Reflection in Drama

In drama, we had a improv game tournament. We played  Space Jump, Die! Story! Die, Statues, and Expert Double Figures in a group. My group-members were me, Eileen, Hana, and Ayaka. I think I did the best in the real one.

I think I did really good on Space Jump. I think we did good on Space Jump because we did really smoothly and we had different types of stories each scene, but I thought I needed to speak more loudly. Also, we should have changed our position by not standing the whole way. We could have sit, or lie down etc.. to change our position. Also, we shouldn’t cover each other up. I didn’t really offer ideas because I was the first person, but I accepted ideas from my other group members, or the audience even though I thought that was a boring idea or not. We could use these skills when we need to make our original studies or when we are sad, we can change our feelings to different kind of feelings. I think I earned a 7 on this because I think this tournament was my best when doing Space Jump because I always stood there and couldn’t think of any story. Eventhough, I made one, it was very very boring.

Improvised Storytelling

Skills- What skills in story telling did I learn?

I learned to listen to the story and think of the next part to make a good storytelling to cooperate with other members. I learned the skills: listening, watching, imagining and being creative.

 

Approach- How did I use skills in Physical Cooperative Storytelling?

For the cooperative storytelling, I used the skill “listening” to the person before and imagined the story to think of the next part of the story. For the physical storytelling, I used the skill “watching” and “imagining”, so I saw my partner’s action and talked about the story.

 

Connections- How could I use these skills in performance?

You can think about the story and create the story in your own way with “thinking” and “imagining”. Also you can watch the other members acting and talking by using the skill “watching” and look carefully how the other members are telling the story and acting.
