William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare | Vance Loveridge's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Vance Loveridge's insight:

I thought that this picture was showing that Shakespeare is always going to be one of the best play rights ever. I say that this picture goes along with that because the man holding a skull or masks with face's are always a resemblance to plays and/or acting.

Shakespeare's Mysticism of Happiness

Shakespeare's Mysticism of Happiness | Vance Loveridge's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Vance Loveridge's insight:

In this article the author speaks about how the fairies and/or mystic creatures and the mortals are always meeting up and changing the course of the others life, but the fairies and/or the mystic creatures always are getting out without being noticed. These mystic creatures are always making the humans live's better in some sort of way, by making them realize something, helping others get together, or helping you find your way out of the forest.

Hermia and Aristotle

Hermia and Aristotle | Vance Loveridge's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Vance Loveridge's insight:
SOURCE ARTICLE: Hermia in history and the Hermia in Shakespeare play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" are completely different because. In Shakespeare's play she is made out to be a virtuous women and wouldn't do anything wrong before marriage. While in history she is known to have seduced Aristotle which is the exact opposite then she would do in the play.

Vance Loveridge's insight:

HISTORICAL ARTICLE: in this article it is talking about what kind of things they would show in the glob theater, and how much of a big deal it was. The person describes going there and said it was great experience how he was able to go and see a play there and just imagine what it was like back in the day.

Im also interested in that opinion, i would think that the actors may get distracted and in todays standers they would probably get mad because of the lack of humor in todays socity, whats your insight on that?
samantha kent's comment, March 28, 2014 12:58 PM
do you think in the theartres today, this way of acting and capturing peoples attention would work? would want to see a play with acting like the acting back in shakespears time?
samantha kent's comment, March 28, 2014 1:01 PM
it is really interesting how this was the main source of ebtertainment of our time. it is very different then now. it is also interesting how you can see the contrast of the social classes throughout the levels of the theater. it really showed the conrast from rich to poor. even though the poor had the "better"/closer seats. now adays the better seats are infront.

Midsummer Night's Dream, Act 5 Scene 1

A scene done by myself and a few friends, which took first place in several Drama competitions. Hope you enjoy!
Vance Loveridge's insight:

In this part of "midsummer night's dream," bottom and the drama crew preform a scene "pyramus and thisbe"  which they created. They perform this play they created to the 2 just married couples. This performance is done at Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy.

I really enjoyed the confidence that the actors had when they were reinacting the play from their perspective of it. Hopefully Mrs. Ryan lets us do an activity like this in our upcoming lessons on perspective
Jason Carey's comment, March 10, 2014 9:08 PM
I agree with David on trying something like this in class. I also feel that this video shows the perspective part of Shakespeare's plays very well, because without props like we have today all parts of the performance are dependent on the actors. Well said, David.

I agree with both Dave and Jason because I enjoy how the actors are not afraid to dress like a women or come close to other males. I like the confidence of this video.
