  • Adolf Hitler - 1,998 words

  • Jason - 469 words
    Jason We alone can not go down and get close enough to explore the Titanic. We now have the technology to build robotic machines to explore the ocean floor like Jason or Jason Jr. They are smaller than a submarine, actually a lot smaller, almost like a remote control car. The Titanic sank in the north Atlantic in 1912. Jason Jr. is very handy, it can reach as deep as 4000 meters. The reason they do not have Jason Jr. any more is because it got lost in 1991 off the Galapagos Island and was found 9000 feet down in the water, so it was replaced by Jason. They use remote controls like Jason and Jason Jr. because divers can not get in as close as Jason can. There also is a risk of a diver getting ...

  • Mr Max Kelad - 709 words
    Mr. Max Kelad MR. KNOW- ALL The story takes place just after the war on a liner that is on it's way from Sanfrancisko to Yokohama. From the very first lines of the story we can see that the narrator doesn't like the main hero of the story - Max Kelad that can be proved by the following quotation: When I was told the name of my companion my heart sank. It suggested closed portholes and the night air rigidly excluded. We can see that the narrator of the story likes Englishmen very much and that's way he says that he wouldn't be so unhappy about his fellow mate if his name would be Smith or Braun. By this we can understand that Maugham is a patriot - he likes only his countrymen. But the narrat ...

However I do think our characters were well worked on and we almost convinced the audience to who we were and what we were doing in the scene. The scene itself had plenty of tension within it brought about by silence and glancing stares. There was also good proxemics in the way we used the space. This also relates to some of the dance work we've been doing also that we can't just use some of the stage its better if we use all of it if you can.
