1948 words - 8 pages

Drama Coursework- Unit 2.For my portfolio unit 2 i shall be writing about homelessness and refugees.Area of Study 1- Character & Context.One example of characters taken from real life was a young male refugee called Adriatik. His life started out normally as a school boy in his homeland and then it changed for the worst. Firstly his school closed down, and he was involved in a protest against the closure of his school. He was arrested and was kept under custody, where the police deprived him and his friends of food and water and he was beaten. They were released and Adriatik was sent back home with no education. Him and his friends decided to find a better life elsewhere and left their homeland.Our task was to show any part of the article using a conscience alley at the point where Adriatik was about to flee his homeland with his friend. The class was small, as some people didn't turn up that day, so we decided to work as a whole group of six people. We decided on what parts we would like to have shown and who was going to be which characters.The police controlling the protest were Levi and Lee. The protestors were Theo, Phillip and me. Phillip was Adriatik. Me and Theo were Adriatik's friends. Chantelle was the narrator reading out the article. We decided to show the protest scene, the scene inside the police station and the scene where his friends came for him. The rest of the parts we read out using a narrator. The conscience alley had two sides; one was the side advising Adriatik to leave with his friends the other was advising him to stay. Once Phillip got to the end he decided that Adriatik, his character, should leave.Area of Study 2- Structure, Shaping & Plot.After the task in Area of Study 7, we then had to devise a second scene showing what life for both members was like before the split that caused one member to move and the other stay. This would be shown using flashbacks and flash-forwards (time shifts) and would be influenced by a letter written to them. Again me and Levi were together and we decided to do this additional task after the second instead of in the middle of the letters like some of the other pairs. After I read the second letter that was sent to me, we used a flashback to re-enact the scene. The second letter talked about my mother and the state she was left in after she stepped on a bomb planted by the Allied forces, and that she was taken and beaten by the same Allied forces. She was then dumped and found later on and is currently under intensive care. It also explained that life in Afghanistan is getting worse and that I was their only hope of surviving. They asked for some of my money from my wages to support them until they can move here.Area of Study 3- Audience.For the audience to really understand and become aware about homelessness we had to perform a monologue in front of the rest of the class from the point of a homeless person. We had ten minutes to prepare and rehearse our monologue. This was to...
