Grenfell Grenfell Fire 14 June
At first I could tell that the story was to do with the animosity of the men and how they treat others mainly due to the influence of alcohol however the story was not clear throughout as many different things happened and there was not a link between them or a reason to why they happened. The movement felt really weird and sort of lackluster.
In the first bar fight scene the men were moving slowly and fluidity which had no intensity to it and did not feel like a fight to me. The sex doll is helpless and the men can easily have their way with it also the last scene involving the doll showed the men passing it Dv8 enter achilles as an object and disrespecting it.
When one of the men rebelled and showed negativity towards the group the group abused him and left him to cry alone.
This shows how men stereotypically act towards each other when a woman is involved. The first thing I noticed was a moment where one of the characters started to shout into a pint glass, this was effective because it showed anger in Dv8 enter achilles different way rather than the man lashing out and hitting something.
There was also a scene where the men all moved in unison which created a feeling of animosity among the men as they were moving like a pack of wolves.
This metaphor shows the stereotypical cruel nature of these men and how they might treat things or people like an animal would. This image of the men being animals shows that they are inhumane and maybe so are their actions.
This could also be a way to get the moral of the story across to the audience as the producers do not want people in the real world to follow the actions of these men so they portray them as something inhumane.
The most effective scene in my opinion was when the man who was getting bullied, who was now superman, was rolling a football and gave it to another man who was being aggressive. This shows the audience that men do not have to be this aggressive and strong thing but instead can be a calm person.
The doll was used to portray a woman and how the men would treat her however I found it extremely weird even though I understood the message because the doll was used in the opening scene without any context so it was just a man using a sex doll.
Fight scenes are typically intense and fast paced however this one was extremely slow and boring especially since alcohol was involved so there should have been more aggression throughout the scene. The man becoming superman was also weird as there was no need for it and it was just hard to watch when there is a guy in a poorly made suit.
The style of this play was a modernised Shakespeare. The positives of this performance were that during the first bar fight scene had a lot of intensity to it and there was a lot to look at during the scene as there were 3 or 4 fights within the scene and all of them were well done.
There was also a part where everybody on stage was in the bar and all chanting something whilst all pointing upwards in unison. This highlights the fact that these people are all a group because they all do the same things given the same situation.
The objects around the stage were also used in the story as the pool table was a key factor in most scenes or monologues.
The table was used to inflict pain on others during the fight scene and all the fights were well choreographed.May 01, · Create your citations, reference lists and bibliographies automatically using the APA, MLA, Chicago, or Harvard referencing styles. It's fast and free!
Fast-forward to the present where Mr Cain and his best friend (Paul Blackman) goof around in a hilarious and physically imaginative ode to the masculine need to whack and punch each other, reminiscent of DV8's Enter Achilles. They spin and crash, fling each other from room to room and hop through a series of physical obscenities.
