Silent movie

In Drama class we watched a silent movie and we had to do a character analisist.




Girl dad

I think that the boy and the girl love each other but their parents would not let them see each other.

Moving legs

hand on the door

I think that I could use the pushing. It is because It could be used when someone is mad.Also I could use the looking down. It is because I could mean that I am shy or sad. I could also use the pointing finger saying go over there or get that thing for me. We could also use Finger locked together when we are praying or showing that we have to be calm.

Drama Mime

In drama class we learned how to mime and we had to make a scene using mime. Ours story is about two teens and a grandpa in a library having a fight. Here is our scene.

7C Drama: Mime Scene from YIS Arts on Vimeo.


I think my staging in the mine scene were good. It is because I told people to shush in the library, I put the books away in the cart, I stamped the books and lastly I gave books to the people who were looking for books.

I think that my using of space while performing in some places needed some improvements and some parts were good. For example, the part where I went to look for a book I should have looked up and moved around a bit more so it looks more like I am looking for the right book but all I did was lick my hand a pick up a book. I think that I did a good job of using the space when I moved the cart around to put the book away because I was moving to one shelf to another shelf and was also moving my hand.

I was able to interact with the other characters good. It is because I told Shoichi, Kiyoka and Toma to be quiet in the library.

I think that the mime was believable in some parts because when the librarian put the books away and take the books out it was believable but at the part where the teenager and the grandpa was fighting it was not believable  because this would usually not happen in the library.

Door Mime

In drama class we are doing mimes and we learned how to open a door. This one is a door that is locked. Me and my partner had to find a way to open the locked door.

The two ways we opened the door was try kicking the door but it did not work so the second one was to get a motorcycle  and crash open the door.

I tried to show the size shape and weight of the door by drawing and putting a point so I know where the door is. When I was riding the motorcycle I tried to show the size of it with my hand. For the weight I tried to show that it was light because I was riding on it.

I think that I should improve on my face expression more because I was smiling all of the time. I also think that I could do a bit more of expressing the size, shape and weight.
