Stage directions are also used to reveal the humour and action on the stage during the entire performance. At the end of act one, scene two, the audience is and the rest of the patients are told by Doug that there is a fire in the bathroom, where Doug himself, had just exited. Stage directions are used to capture the madness as the characters run off of the stage trying to stop the fire, and as Cherry attacks Doug, and starts to strangle him.
As the curtain raised and the performance began a minimalist set was revealed; stool, chair, basket and a coat-rack. Initially, the minimalist set predicted that the play would be slow-moving, however the lack stage furniture actually focused the audience even more on the storyline, as there were few distractions. This also allowed the actors to effectively include Drama Mediums such as multiple prop. The actors
The structure of the plot itself is unusual. There are no props and no backdrop; the Stage Manager is the only thing or person on stage at the beginning of the play. There is also no fourth wall when it comes to the Stage Manager; he speaks directly to the audience as he says,
First of all, a hero must be confident. A hero must posses this trait because when she is fighting, she should have the ability to stay strong until the end. Moreover, having confidence would encourage her to never give up. This would lead her to success. She would also be alert for any challenges that come in her way. For example, if the enemy ever surprise attacked, she would be able to stay calm and help others. That is why a hero needs confidence.
Dividing the stage was effective because it emphasised the actor’s use of proxemics and showed the different rooms. There was also a staircase that contributed to the actor’s use of levels. They also used the apron of the stage by placing planks across it; there was a particular scene where this was effective when Kipps suddenly fell down a hole in the planks. At the beginning they used the space effectively when the actor came out of the audience, it made the audience feel they were part of the performance.
A hero is someone who risks, or risked, their lives everyday for someone other than themselves. My hero is my dad. My dad has been there for me since I was born. He has been at my soccer games, softball games, track meets, and cross-country meets. But what makes my dad a superhero is that he is in the air force. That means that he risks his life for other people everyday just by going to work.
The performance began with the props of a stool, chair, basket and a coat-rack. The use of the minimal set allowed the audience to focus on the action taking place on stage and storyline, rather than the distractions of the set. Instead of using different scenery, a gauze was used. This was effective as it meant that the scenery would not keep moving, therefore the
The play was performed on a proscenium stage, but the stage was not raised. The audience had raked seating so there was no problem watching the actors on stage. The scenes were very basic. The play began with a large wooden cart in the middle of the stage and throughout the play it transformed into a bedroom and smaller stage. Two females were responsible for making adjustments to the stage in-between scenes. If the entire wooden centerpiece had to be moved all of the actors rotated it together. The production used a gobo which created a sky background for the scenes that took place outside. The scenic changes helped the flow of the production because it marked the different settings, days, and inciting incidents. The set served the action
Heroes possess three characteristics that make them different from the average person. A hero is a man or woman who is selfless, courageous, and fearless. Not only do these people possess these traits, but
“he·ro[ˈhirō]NOUN heroes (plural noun) 1. a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.” Most people think of this definition when they think of the word “hero”, however when others think of the word “Hero” a different definition comes to mind. A hero is a person who other people look up to for guidance because they impacted their lives and whenever there was a tough situation that person got through it. That definition are also three traits that every hero needs. While there are many different types of heroes, the following three character traits are generalized to fit most heroes. A hero is someone who impacts someone's life in any way, regardless if it emotionally or physically. For instance,
There were also moments where fake doors or partition sort of contraptions would float down from the ceilings to separate a scene. I didn’t expect anything like that to happen during the show but it was definitely a genius move that took almost no time at all to get in place, and then remove for the next scene. So, the majority of the stages simplistic elements met and exceeded my expectations going in for what a Company stage should be composed of.
As I stated before the stage was empty when I first arrived. Throughout the play, the stage transformed into many different places. There were times when it was a house, a ballroom, and even the outdoors. This could not have been done if the stage were completely filled with props. If the stage had had many different props it would have taken away from my experience because I would have been too busy looking at that instead of what the actors were doing. It also would have made the stage too crowded because there were many more actors throughout this play than in the play The Cake. The key aspect of the stage was the moving

Stage also create moods. The dancers perform An Act of Now perform in a confined stage – a transparent glass house which shaped like a prison cell. The windows of the glasshouse are used to illustrate a sense of enclosure as the dancers brutally connect with its panes, slide down them and exploit levels of space. Later, the dancers explore their relationships with the structural aspects of the cube, the rail that runs around its perimeter and the structures overhead. While the claustrophobia and the aggression are overextended at times, the audience
