DRA 110: INTRO TO THEATRE (online)

DESIGN” ASSIGNMENT

Due: June 21, by 8pm

For this assignment, you are going to choose, and analyze, a contemporary theatre scenic design.

Examine the attached photos of professional designs.

Choose one that you find compelling, one that speaks to you in some way, and that you feel has enough interesting choices for you to analyze.

Write two pages on the design you choose. Using information from the chapters, analyze the design elements. What has been created? What does it make you feel? What do you think is it’s emotional power? What kind of play do you envision being done on this stage?

There are no wrong answers. You are arguing your “take” on this work of art. Your grade will be determined by the strength and depth of your arguments, the length of the paper, and any grammatical or writing errors.
