The title of this work is “a copy of the same kind by a man”. Unlike our habitual way, the naming method of this work is not determined by the content, but a is determined by its intention. But I will still introduce this work separately from these two aspects.
In terms of content, the monologue in the film is selected from the role of Sonya in Chekov’s “Uncle Vanya”. I did not make any possible changes in the character and background of the character, but just tried to express my understanding of her. And, I hope to use this to show my learning of acting at this stage.
From the standpoint, that is, to get to the root. What I want to convey through the content is actually “a copy of a person to his kind”, which is nothing more than answering a question, that is, “what is a performance?” I will further divide the copy according to the part and the whole. This can also be seen directly in the film. I think the part and the whole build a performance together. The whole provides conviction for the performance and the part brings the room for thinking.
I have to say that the word copy has many meanings in this work. Performers should make all their performances based on reality, and at the same time, just like copying, we also have the obligation and right to recreate in terms of expression quantity and expression angle. But in any case, the things copied should be real, that is, the things the performer interprets are derived from this world.
There seems to be a problem here: Why can’t I convey my thoughts on performance through the performance itself, but explain the concept and content separately? Very frankly speaking, this is because I think my current performance status and ability have not reached what I think of as a good performer (for details on the review, please refer to the personal website). It’s too arrogant to use myself as an example to convey what a “performer” is. I hope I can someday.
