I remember vividly, a choreographer of mine said that all dancers are actors but not all actors are dancers. A lot of times, a dance item is set in a particular scene, where you have to act out the character. Most of these items are with my dance items with Raffles Hall because the items tend to lean more on the entertainment value side.
I’ve had some crazy costumes and the best ones are those from rag I swear. I wear rags (literally) but I still feel like a star!
In year 2010 for rag, I was a scientist from the past. This costume was super duper hot, I think I lost 1kg from all the sweat but it was the best costume ever. My vest was made from haversack, the eyelet hooks were from tin cans and the ruffles were from some table cloth. My little tool bag had cool handmade tools such as a compass and ruler.
Of course, no Nike then.
Out of context but at a DnD I was a sailor.
In 2010, my hall did a typical school item.
In 2011, we put up an item about Maria the domestic helper who wanted to be a K-POP superstar. We choreographed with props such as dusters, brooms and rags.
