Final Presentation: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Transcript of Final Presentation: A Midsummer Night's Dream
The three sets of couples represent different points in relationships. There are the dating couple, committed relationship about to be married, and the older married couple and their constant bickering. Within one play, Shakespeare presents a short look at how loving relationships mature and evolve. Visual Progression within the Production Visual progression within the production occurs as characters travel between the structured world of cities to the fantastical world of the forest (and back). The travels of the dating couples radically change their relationships after the events in the forest.
The climax of the production combines both worlds as the supernatural characters Oberon and Titania come to bless the married couple. Visually, the two worlds combine for the wedding as the refreshed forest can be seen from the palace. World of the Play Set in Classical Greece, period appropriate architectural elements will be found in the city and palace scenes. Costumes for the main characters will also be period appropriate. Straight lines, planned design, and tailored fabrics will be the focus for these design elements. Mood and Style In order to contrast the two worlds, Athens will be a city of light, structure, and organization while the forest will be a fluid and organic world where the unexpected is an everyday occurrence.
The surface differences of both worlds is an illusion. Each is controlled by their respective leaders and the lovers are equally helpless with regards to their fates.
Brightly lit scenes in the city will be met with eery saturated colors of the forest. In the end of the play, the deeper colors will be found in the city with the return of the lovers.
