Now that we had our final class "Theater Talk" yesterday, December 15 2007, why not share our comments?!
I think noone will deny that the class was successful and everybody's performance was simply magnificent.
My thanks to everybody!
Not only were you perfectly ready but also, as the phrase learnt by you says, you "showed the marvels of artistic transformation" - you did good job as the students who learnt the material, you did some creative job and you performed well as actors.
And this class also helped us to get a little glimpse into one another's souls - and that is very important in the work of teachers and students.
So, you are welcome, you can post your comments here.
Our final class devoted to the theatre impressed me greatly! I learned a lot of new facts from the presentations devoted to the history of the theatre, to famous Russian theatres, to Globe theatre and avant-guard theatres.Though I’m not a theatre-goer, after this class I decided that if I had an opportunity I would visit all these famous theatres.
I think, Kate’s presentation devoted to Oleg Menshikov was very emotional and she made all of us interested in him as he is a charismatic personality and outstanding Russian actor. Though I’m not a fan of this actor, I also admire him and thanks to Kate’s presentation I learned a lot of new about Oleg Menshikov.
I really enjoyed watching our version of “Pygmalion” and I think all actors created true-to-life images, but Eugene as Higgins outshone everybody else.
This class left a deep and lasting impression on me.
