Play W h I L E

- The audience sits in front of the actors in row of seats.

- Play usually consist of dialogue between characters.


How effectively did your group work together? What did each member contribute to the task? I think my group work really hard to get the final outcome of the ritual. We practice seriously especially the day of the performance. We even come early from lunch to practice the ritual. All of the members also contributed to the task. What did you and your group find difficult? What problems did you have? How did you solve these problems? • I guess the most difficult part of this ritual is creating the movements for the ritual. The ritual have to be around 4 minutes. At first, our group thought that it was going to be easy. However, when we get to work we actually have difficulties finding the correct moves at the correct timing. At last, we try all kinds of movement to see which one fits best for the ritual.
