Live Theatre Analysis The set used for Vernon God Little was highly symbolic and simplistic; when we walked into the theatre we could visually see that there were flowers, cards and memorable items attached on the audiences seats above our heads, which already created a sombre atmosphere around the theatre.
How has physical theatre developed over time? Physical theatre is a form of performance where movement and physicality of the body has the main part within a performance. There are several quite distinct traditions of performance which all describe themselves using the term "physical theatre", which has led to a lot of confusion as to what the definition of physical theatre actually is.

I love the impact a piece of theatre has on the audience and when working in theatre you have the opportunity to experience first-hand the emotion you evoke in people.

My goal and main objective is to be an actor, that people who feel alone can connect to. When I was really down, I felt like there was no one I could connect to; except for the characters I would see in movies and tv shows. It was the characters that I saw myself in, that gave me hope.
