hi, i'm currently doing theatre SL, my teacher is kinda confusing, so i don't understand most of the time. but i would like to know, how exactly should we carry out a PPP.
like i know we have a stimuli and then we find influences from there. but can we really focus on anything, from movements to stage construct to costumes?

You're supposed to focus on all of that. What you do is you come up with an idea of a play and you write a 250 word pitch for section one. In Section Two, you illustrate the costumes, the blocking (if you want), the set, etc. You should support all your illustrations/visuals with text, but it should not be written as an essay. So you're coming up with an idea and then illusrtating the visuals of the "play" based on the stimuli.

and for our finals last term we have done the production bible
where we had to concentrate on EVERY detail of the play
like we can start with the stage, props, lighting, cast, reasons why they are casted, their costumes and a short
explanation of it, blockings, sound, actions
and stuff well its not hard its just that you should try to be as detailed as possible and to analyze its relationship
to the play and nail it (if we are just going to go around and around, IB will fail us)
though arts may not be memorization or something, it has alot of aspects where we have to do alot of work
im HL and im kinda worried cuz our teacher says that the overall average around the world is a 4
if you need help, i am free just message me or something
best of luck to you!

Look at the marking criteria and you will notice that you NEED to say how all the theatrical devices complement each other in producing a piece of theatre. i.e. the whole is greater than its sums.
I used I Giorni, by Ludovico Einaudi.
What a stimulus to have, MUST give it a listen
I would spend hours just listening to the song, thinking about what it means and what I could do, until I fell asleep.
What a way to work, huh?!
The other stimuli I had was a comic strip, a japanese short story, a poem and something else.
My final idea was a ballet performance behind a screen, so that the audience only sees the shadows of 2 dancers, performing the interwine of a love relationship, kinda thing. Cause it kinda goes up and down, so I thought it should be a bit like the sun and the moon, and their orbits and their relationship to each other.
Used Laban's 8 basic efforts, amongst other things.

I'd say don't get too carried away with huge ideas (you'll have to spend a lot of time mulling over the nitty gritty of how it's gonna work... and then explaining it). You could work with a simple idea and potentially ace the whole thing because you're well-acquainted with the practical requirements of staging a theatrical production.
From what I know, we only have 4 weeks to complete the task (I may be wrong) so we don't really have a lot of time. Do some research on lighting, ask about how colours work under different lights and try it out for yourself (if you start early). Good luck!

What should be included in a PPP and does anyone know where I could see a sample??
Posted Apr 03, 2011 - 14:57
Ahh! I've lost my ppp stimuli for the may 2011 session (this upcoming one, I know one of them is the seven deadly sins?) so could anyone tell me what they are?
The stimuli are:
The Seven Deadly Sins (pride, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath, greed, sloth)
Why the Praying Mantis Shakes (story from Ghana)
Dreamtime Chart (Aboriginal religion)
"Hue of the cherry" by Ono no Komachi (poem)
"Her eyes are underneath the ground" by Antony and the Johnsons (song)
