Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator : 

Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator P1. Create a publicity plan to bring in audience: Here my main focus was mostly, who would be interested in viewing “And the soul shall dance” ? I was given a sub-point saying that my targeted audience should be Students / Faculty of academic departments. After some brainstorming I ended up with the following departments. Theatre Department: History Department: Japanese Department: Arts / Design Departments:

Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator : 

Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator P2. Create a plan for each academic department: Theatre Department: This department was obvious given that we are SBCC students trying to set up a play. With excellent contacts already in the department such as Dr. Michael Downey I foresee little trouble in attracting people and spreading the word in this department. History Department: Given the setting of the play and the people involved this department was my next logical choice to include. To draw students from this department mostly I was going to rely on Classroom visitations. Some of the classes I had in mind would be: Hist100, Hist102/102H, Hist108, Hist111 And especially: Hist114, Hist116

Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator : 

Publicity Director / Educational outreach Coordinator Japanese Department: Given that the name of the play is an actual Japanese song that would be played almost in full during the play. That along with the cultural aspect that both students and faculty could consider useful, if not directly class in the class curriculum still relevant to any Japanese class. Arts / Design departments: This here is a far stretch as to show how the play could relate to the different classes. Mostly I was planning on going about this in 2 ways. Aside from class visitations suggesting that the heartfelt play might provide inspiration to any hardworking artist I was considering hiring some of the students to provide some of the art and suggest that they invite friends and classmates.

Slide 12: 

P3. Promotional Campaign: I’ve already touched on this but given that my target audience is students and faculty most of my Promotional campaign will be centered around Classroom visitations. Among other ideas, I’ve been considering: The electrical sign outdoors at main campus cafeteria, ISSP Newsletter and If possible a spot on the SBCC Website. P4. Present a design for a Publicity poster: Symbols: Phonograph – Playing the music (title name – song). Sunset (Some what the mood of the play). Inside-out – Among other shows the structure of the families back then. “Staring off into the distance” – Gives the idea of deeper thoughts and the feel of “waiting”.

Why did we choose this scene? : 

Why did we choose this scene? This particular scene was chosen to exhibit because of its ability to capture the substantial amount of emotion behind the characters desire to return to their native land of Japan, as well as a deeper examination of a key relationship in the play.

Scene explained: : 

Scene explained: The hope to one day restore the former lifestyle, familiar environment, and customs that the characters had once enjoyed is exposed in this violent eruption between Emiko and Oka. After it is revealed that the money that Emiko has (she thought secretly) been hoarding from Oka has been taken back, Emikos dreams of returning to Japan are crushed, leaving her to accept her position that she has found herself in, both geographically and in life.

Continued… : 

Continued… As this is essentially the climax of the work, and an extreme emotive high point of the play, it explores the characters emotions in a depth unseen prior in the work, revealing truth that had been left unspoken, and exposing the characters true motives and feelings.

Continued… : 

Continued… As the play is relatively void of a comparable amount of “action”, this scene felt appropriate to perform due it's unmatched level of emotional and visual intensity
