Evaluate the performance’s awareness of audience and delivery using this guide . Copy and paste all that apply to the soliloquy into a word processing document; then give an example of each area from the performance. For example, if you determined nervous tension was obvious, explain where in the speech you felt this to be the case. You should have five examples of analysis from the performance. 1. Relaxed, self-confident and clear voice: “Or to take arms against a sea of troubles And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep—No more—and by a sleep to say we end The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to.” The actor was fairly relaxed and confident during this specific part of the audio. The variation of volume and the inflection of his voice really emphasized this portion of the reading and captured my attention. 2. Use of tone creates a better understanding of the meaning of the monologue in some areas: “When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. There's the respect That makes calamity of so long life.” Tone is essentially the voice of something. It's the lens that the audience sees all of the events and characters through. So it’s an important part of what actors and actresses do because of the effect it has on the work and on the audience. During this part of the reading I believe the actor’s tone played a vital role in giving listeners a deeper understanding of the meaning.
