Describe three of the IB Learner Profile attributes that helped you through rehearsals and in the performance. Explain how you embodied/demonstrated them. (Inquirer, Knowledgeable, Thinker, Communicator, Principled, Open-Minded, Caring, Risk-Taker, Balanced, Reflective)

One of the IB Learner Profile attributes that helped me through rehearsals and in the performance is being Open-Minded because many of our classes were canceled during the rehearsal process and performance and everyone had to be flexible and Open-Minded. Another attribute that helped me is Caring for others because when we were backstage we had to be quiet and Principled in order for the performing group to do their best. Also, at the end of the 6 RJ dance we had to stand in a straight line and link hands and to be Caring and ensure the line is straight I would gently push someone forward or backward, like Ms. Tanya said. While we were performing our act I had to be a gesture communicator to tell Seb or Pranav that I need the microphone, by using tiny hand gestures, a nod or by elbowing them, but only if they forget.

Thinking of your role in the performance (chorus member, Athena, Poseidon, Apollo etc.)… Where did you get inspiration or from whom did you get inspiration? What influenced how you brought your character to life?

I was influenced to bring my character to life by looking at the Greek theatre masks with the different emotions on them, that the chorus would wear. Also, I got inspiration from Ms. Race when she was talking about how great the Greek chorus is and in the beginning of Prometheus act the chorus said that they were the most important part of this performance.
What did you discover about yourself during the Don’t Laugh, It’s A Tragedy rehearsals and performance?

I discovered quite a few things about myself, but what stands out of all the things I discovered about myself is about being nervous because before the performance I had that idea stuck in my head about being nervous. I always had negative thoughts about forgetting everything when I go on stage because I will be nervous, but that was not true it was just my imagination playing with me since I did very well during the rehearsal process.

What are you most proud about our performance of Don’t Laugh, It’s A Tragedy?

There are so many things I am proud of, but mostly proud of all the work I have put in, to make this an awesome performance. Also, remembering all my cues, lines and dances.
