Drama – Mask Performance Evaluation Essay

1304 words - 6 pages

My character’s name is Tyrone. He is going to have Flick as a Laban Effort, and his status is going to be higher than average (7/10). This is because he is winning a game of cards against his opponent. His archetype would be the ‘Manipulator’, because he can control and change people to his likings, in this instance, during a game of cards, as well as the archetype as the ‘Investigator’, this is because he is looking around the room to find the thing making the sound. He works as an interrogation officer, and that brings out his manipulating and investigating characteristics. His future life goals is to become upgraded to a senior interrogation officer and be in command of his department, ...view middle of the document...

His objective was to beat down the thief in the end of the scene. His archetype would be the ‘anti-hero’, which means that he is a hero who didn’t ask to get involved, but does anyways.
I believe that all of my group members used and carried out their character’s body shape, objective and archetype well. This contributed to having a successful play, where we all had our own assigned characteristics and style.
As far as I know, I conclude that my group followed all of the mask rules. They are as follows:
1. Do not touch the masks
2. Do not speak whilst wearing the mask
3. Do not put the mask on while facing the audience
4. Always face the audience
5. Do not conceal the mask for a long period of time
My group followed all of these rules, except the last rule (5). Although I think that it could be an exception. When the thief was beaten down, he was on the ground and the doorway was blocking his mask.
We used the Laban efforts and movements to emphasize our emotions and our facial expressions as we had no face (because it was concealed behind the mask).
Our scene does have a clear beginning, middle and end. The clear beginning is supported by the starting of the suspenseful music. The middle is displayed by the walking around the board when my character is looking for what is making the weird sound. The clear end is shown when the phone is recovered from the thief.
When the group was making the storyboard, we all had a general idea of what we wanted to have as our scene. We discussed our ideas, then we chose the best general idea. This idea which we chose was my idea. After choosing it, we developed that idea, adding characters with characteristics, and props, as well as humor and other interesting details that should be in the play. If our play could be improved, then I think that we could have faced the audience more often and been more over exaggerated with our movements.
When we performed our play for the first time in front of the class, just for a peer evaluation, we got a lot of positive and constructive feedback. Some of the positive feedback is as follows:
1. The idea is very good and is very creative
2. The play is humorous
3. The give and take focus aspect is good in your play
Some of the constructive feedback we got is as follows:
1. The play is too empty and should have more things going on
2. Face the audience more, otherwise the mask is not helping a lot
3. Over exaggerate your movements, you do not have your face to show your facial...
