    Arcadia, a play by Tom Stoppard, examines an English estate in two different time periods and discusses the relevance of the estate’s history. The audience travels back and forth in time as the present day characters learn about the lives of those who lived almost two centuries before them. While costumes, actors, and syntax styles make time travel evident to the audience, the set does not shift at all. Furthermore, all props that are used on stage remain there, whether they be a quill pen or a coffee mug. One prop in particular, a tortoise, is used throughout both worlds. This tortoise best exemplifies one of the major themes of the play, that history is relevant for as long as it matters to someone. In 1809, the audience meets a young girl, Thomasina, and her tutor, Septimus. As they learn about and prove theories well ahead of the time period, a guest in the home, Ezra Chater, learns that his wife has been caught with another man.

As Hannah and Bernard, along with a graduate student, Valentine, accumulate journals and notes from the characters in the past, Bernard believes that Lord Byron shot and killed Chater. The audience by now has learned that Septimus and and Chater are to duel, for Septimus was the man who…

    The moderate movement shots of Yodda mysteriously going through suburbia makes a fantasy like environment. What's more, as the tune, with its bassy expanded voice, completes, the shot moves from an evening in suburbia, to an evening time shot of Yodda remaining before what gives off an impression of being dwelling house. To get a feeling of the importance behind these shots and the video, I got up to speed with the craftsman for further intimations. He clarified that the shoes spoke to getting…
