Theatre RI- HL

Recommended Posts

Hello, every IB genius. i am a bit stuck in finding a nice RQ for my RI

I start doing the RI in IB theatre. and my topic is about JAPANESE KABUKI

my research question is how do the coustumes influence the play love suicide at sonezaki in the theatre of KABUKI?

i am not sure if it is ok question and the play is a bit short... I DONT KNOW, but i want to focus on coustume or make-up

thanks for everyone. please advising me or suggesting me

:D

Wow, this is spooky! In my first year of IB, I did a practice RI on nearly the same topic, except I did it from a Bunraku puppet perspective instead of a Kabuki perspective.

It's a good topic though! I'm not too sure about Kabuki, but with Bunraku, there are musicians, narrators, puppeteers and the puppets themselves, so I had heaps to write about because each performer had a special costume for the performance.

Maybe look into Kabuki and see if it is like Bunraku, where there are more roles than just the actor. The good news is, there is heaps of info on the play and the costumes for it.

good luck :D

This is crazy! One of my classmates did this EXACT RI! Except I think he did Bunraku as well. Either way, he was fine, he had lots to talk about. You can even pick costumes AND make-up, since they are so closely related. Great topic!
