Bread and Puppet Criteria for Matthew Cohen's group
(This is an initial draft of criteria prepared by Nat Horne. To be revised by the group via comments on the blog and via facebook.)
Use of puppets and masks and other props –did we use these in the style of Bread and Puppet, and did we make them with recyclables as B&P do?
Working as an ensemble – does it look like everyone is involved, and do we complement each other on stage?
Communicating our message – is the script relevant, is it well structured, satirical but still serious?
Choreography – do we use movement effectively? Non-verbal communication is important with B&P.
Staging – do we fill and use the stage well? Is our presentation appropriate to the space we are performing in?
