  1. Personally I started with the second option, just because it seemed like the most logical sequence of actions. Also because it leads to you being guaranteed to find an important aspect within the practice rather than potentially having to switch plays/aspects if there is not enough source material to pull from. I would recommend the second but honestly students should just do whichever one they prefer and are most comfortable with.
  2. If you're going to be any sort of science major in university, I can guarantee from experience that the further o-chem option will prove to be very useful.
  3. Once you research enough about how music is used in Kabuki as a whole then you can probably infer how it should be used in the play. That's what the RI is for after all. Hope that helps!
  4. My oh my asking someone to list everything would take decades, although if you asked a more specific question we would all be more than happy to help.
  5. Well Rani, your question still sounds too broad. If you want to talk about blocking, then choose blocking because you need an aspect of the performance. Right now your aspect is generally "performing." Like I said in class, if it ties into answering your research question, then talk about the history and tie it into the point you make. Take the history and apply that knowledge to your choices on stage. What I was trying to say is that one should not simply talk about history for the sake of talking about the history of the practice, the examiners will already know that. It should be struc
  6. Yea Sophie I mentioned Eden also. Although I think I mentioned the unpaved roads as a symbol of purity and beginning, as in Eden. And the poison that they breathe referred to in the next sentence as the poisons of industrialization along with the "poisons" that influenced Adam and Eve after they ate the forbidden fruit. Hopefully that works. And I do not believe that mentioning an "island" will hurt you much, if at all, as long as it was not central to your argument.
  7. Hopefully the marker is well informed and knows what I'm talking about! Or at least the markscheme says something about it, because I am not religious either but religious allusion was all I kept seeing!
  8. Paper 2 was easier than paper 1 also IMO. Maybe because I felt like I had more time than in paper 1. Praying for that 7!
  9. I chose the prose, John Edgar Wideman's The Fever. The main thng I saw in it was that it was full of religious allusions, but maybe thats just me ("everything begins with water and ends with water" or something like that" could refer to baptism. Also the idea that the fever did not kill very many people, but would inevitably return again is very comparable to baptist ideals. God is merciful, but the fever is his punishment for sin. People will inevitably sin again, so the fever would inevitably return again. However the harshest sinners would die from the fever. I kept finding little thi
  10. Sketches, mind-maps, mood diagrams, storyboards...etc. Anything that will help you to communicate your ideas coherently.
  11. Thanks so much! Very helpful!! How did you do on your PPP if I may ask?
  12. Hello! So my PPP is due in a week, and I have made pretty good progress on it so far, but I was wondering. Basically we are graded on the process and of our development of ideas and how the performance and production elements relate. Now I am potentially the worst artist, and if I tried to sketch costumes, stage designs, blocking, movements etc.. I feel it would make section 2 much less coherent even if sketches may help the process. So I was wondering if I could use images that I found on the internet as long as I cite them. Any IB Theatre experts out there?
  13. Make sure your research question connects the aspect of a production to a production and connects that production to a theatre practice.
  14. Probably something about the Dawes Plan and the Locarno Treaties.
  15. Well... What were the aims?
