So for this unit, we received a stimulus of some girls dancing in the red light district. While we were watching the video we wrote down words that popped up in our heads as we watch the video. Some of the words that I wrote down were sin, self-destruct, robots, leather and lace. Then we got together in our groups. Everybody picked a couple of words from somebody else's list. Then people picked one word from the list. The word that I picked was self destruct. We then did a movement piece based off that.
We mentioned some songs that popped into our head. I mentioned secrets by the pierce sisters, Steph mentioned 50 shades of grey version of crazy in love. Sara mentioned young volcanoes by fall out boy.
After we decided on those songs. Dirk asked us what colors our characters would be. I said an explosion of color. We then listened to crazy in love by Beyonce though it wasn't the version that Steph wanted us to listen to. After that we listened to Secrets by the pierce sisters. We took notes while listened to these songs. Dirk's original idea was that we were at a battered women's shelter but Steph really liked the idea of being in Amsterdam so we started thinking about sex workers and decided to do a play about sex from 5 different p.o.vs I chose to be a sex worker and make a monologist of that. My color wasn't working for me so I threw it out. I then came up with a monolouge.
