During the Arts term I worked on a play with Tiffany and Michael. We created a play that was about friends and bullying. We wanted to show that bullying is not allowed at our school because it can hurt people in so many ways. We also created a dance within the play. On the rubric I have put my learning at relational because I can create a dance using the elements of dance, I can also create a play based on the heart of Waimairi School.
Some of the things that I learnt about the elements of dance is space. Space is very important for dance because it allows you to move in different ways. When Tiffany, Michael and I were doing our dance we used levels which were low, medium and high. We also used range because we took up a big space on the stage at times, but we also only used a small chunk of the stage.
When we did our play we had to make our own script. We also had to use stage direction, because if we didn't, we wouldn't know where to place ourselves or put our props.
My next step is to be able to reflect on and develop a play or dance using the elements effectively. Next time I create a play I will try to use monologue and include an antogonist (bad guy) and protagonist character (good guy).
