In a romantic relationship this can certainly be the make it or break it point. If the partners recognize that they have common goals and similar desires then the relationship could be nascent However, when the partners realize they have different aspirations and desires in life they may begin fighting, arguing, blaming each other that their life is not as they wish it was. They will not feel fulfilled in life, they regret decisions, and blame their partner for everything. All that is left is anger, disappointment, and frustration. Most likely, sooner or later, the partners will separate. In ” Alienable,” the young woman explains how she broke up with her boyfriend of two years when the conversation of marriage and family was brought up. The “conversation” ended being an argument where he accused her of “misleading him, claiming that early on [they] had confirmed [their] mutual disdain for the institution ofmarriage and for the idea of delivering any more children into this messed up world.” Yet her views of wanting children changed saying she is “pretty sure” she wants a child now because her parents are getting old. This passage helps show how contradicting desires can make it hard for people to connect and break up relationships.In relationships people can often change in ways that become incompatible with one another, making it difficult to connect. While some changes can alter and improve the dynamics of a relationship, for example being considerably thoughtful and becoming a better communicator, other changes can be off-putting. In “Alienable,” Jay begins telling his heartbroken friend about a couple he knew that recently got divorced. The couple fell in love and got married. The husband was always protective of his timid wife, however, the wife soon began bodybuilding. The husband tried to understand and be supportive, but soon enough he “could no longer touch her. He could no longer sleep with her.” This shows how the wife changing her appearance made it hard for the husband to connect with her physically. Moreover, the wife’ s personality changed which was presumably the driving point of their divorce. After bodybuilding the wife was doubtlessly less timid and did not need protection, which protective is what the husband always was of her. The husband claimed that “he still loved the idea of her, but she was no longer there.” This shows that the change greatly impacted him as he could no longer be the defensive person he wanted to be for her; she could no longer provide this subconscious desire of his.We seek different types of relationships for a variety of purposessafety and security, love and intimacy, to satisfy physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, to name a fewand it is through our connection with others that we come to shape our view of the world around us.

After viewing the online productions of Twilight: Los Angeles by Anna Deveare Smith and Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand, please write a performance review for each of the plays, focusing on one character of your choosing. While watching the production, pay attention to whose performance stood out to you and why. Please be sure to include the characters name, as well as the actors name who performed the role. Your role as the reviewer is not to critique the actors performance, but rather describe what you saw and point out elements of the performance that stood out to you. This does not necessarily mean that everything you write about the performance needs to be praise for the actor. There may have been elements of the performance, or choices made, that appeared confusing, unclear, or ineffective. It is okay to point those elements out, but tell me why they didnt work rather than simply stating your dislike. Here are some questions to ask while thinking about the actors performance: How did the actor use the space? How did they respond to the given circumstances (emotional and physical)? Were they mainly presentational or representational in their style? How did the actor interact with other actors on stage? How did the actor manifest the character through physicality? Did the actor engage the whole body? How did the performance make you feel?I am not looking for a summary of the play. Your focus should be on the character of your choice and that actors specific performance. Your paper should include observations that pertain to the questions above, as well as any other elements of the production you would like to comment on. Be specific! What particular moments in the performance made that actor stand out to you? Your paper must include three specific moments that stood out to you and helped you answer some of the above questions.Technical Details: generally, MLA format Typed 12 pt. font, Times New Roman double spaced 2-3 pages Header (Name, Professor, Course, Date)
