My Reflection On My Performance

Project 5 Reflection
1. What did I notice about how believable and relatable I was in this performance? I felt that the energy and enthusiasm I brought to the stories helped make my performance believable and relatable. I tried to include Broadway fan snippets in each story to help bring that relatability through the script and through the delivery. For example, the “not throwing away his shot” line about Lin Manual-Miranda, which is a snippet from a song from Hamilton.

When it came to the gestures and eyes, I really wanted to use them to emphasis my dialog and help to engage the audience.

I wanted to activate my eyes and create that energy and I think that went well.

To drive a point I tried to crease my brows and narrow my eyes a bit. When telling exciting information or making a little joke, I widened my eyes and lifted my eyebrows to open up my face. I hope all of this came together to help my stories reach the audience well.

I have learned that I really like working behind the scenes as well. Directing and assistant directing are a lot of fun, I enjoy helping to shape the show in a way. I think our team works so well together because we all get it and want each other to do well. As each person goes, I’m in the control room cheering them on and hoping that they do so well, it’s been cool to see that teamwork build and the way everyone supports each

    After striving to meet our own standards, the rush of satisfaction fills us with confidence and pride. We want to capture ourselves in our finest moments, and so, we take a selfie. It preserves the best versions of who we strive to be and serves as evidence for what we are capable of attaining.
