confidence was A common theme I noticed about each dancer whether they were in dance floor or dance one. each dancer would hold their chin up and press the shoulders back which made them look elegant.

Therefore, analyzing the theory of Sigmund Freud to Blanche, it seems as if she has an innate motive that influence her to have these illusions and false notions.Blanche is suffering from past experiences beginning with the loss of her husband, the loss of Belle Reve, and the loss of her job as a Literature teacher in Laurel which resulted in a downfall on her life.

She was a beautiful girl there and had a lot of gentleman callers. She pined bitterly over the loss of this place and time and the poor choice she made in husbands.

At the beginning of the play Laura is wrapped up in her own little world of glass creatures and phonograph records. She is afraid of people and afraid of the world.

Not only was it evident that the dancers had worked hard, but that ballet was truly something was inherently a part of them, so much that many of them would have had a void within them that would be hard to fill without this art form in their lives. This was incredibly evident from the outstanding choreography, and how each dancer was like a part of a clock working together to solidify the haunting story of Madame Butterfly. I also loved how each character had different characterizations to help silently establish who they were. For example, much of Pinkerton’s movements were sharp, while Butterfly’s were more slow and graceful. I also loved how mirroring was used to help establish and solidify relationships of characters.

Their rhythmic movements were so in sync that they were on beat with the low tempo music most of the time.
