Transcript of MONOLOGUE


A monologue is a moment in a play, film, or novel, where a character speaks without being interrupted by any other characters. These speeches can be addressed to someone, or spoken to the actor's self or to the audience, in which case they are called soliloquies. Another type of this speech, especially in novels, is the interior monologue, where a character has a long bout of thinking personal thoughts that are not interrupted by speech or actions. This technique may also be used in film, where a voice over provides the inner thoughts of the character. WHAT IS A MONOLOGUE? MONOLOGUES USES

Monologues are a common device used by poets, playwrights and writers in a range of media such as poems, plays, animation, films, etc. Monologues are also used by actors to reveal their acting talent while auditioning for a certain role in films or plays. By performing well in a monologue the actor can display his talent to the director, producer or agent who can then secure a role for the actor in the required media. Many a times during the audition process, actors are asked to enact monologues which are about two minutes in length. THE VARIOUS TYPES OF MONOLOGUES

The Comic Monologue is a genre in which the actor can display his ability to enact a comic role. While enacting the monologue he has to reveal his sense of comic timing and emote with the proper comic expressions, appropriate comical sounds and movements.

A Dramatic Monologue enables the character to speak out his thoughts about a particular event and show a range of emotions appropriate to the situation and may include feelings of joy, sadness, love, hatred, fear or revenge.

The Shakespearean Monologue, “To be or not to be” from Hamlet is a well know example of the classic monologue. So apart from the comic and dramatic monologue, memorizing and learning to enact a monologue from a Shakespeare play is the ultimate dream for many. A Shakespearean monologue offers the actor to demonstrate his acting prowess in various roles and settings. EXAMPLES OF MONOLOGUES By: SIDACIA BROWN
