all about revenge, dark and creepy.
Outstanding, creepy, dark, possessed, devilish, death, horrifying, awful, disgusting, creative, thoughtful, clear, Japanese
the torture of the main characters, utilizing sharp and piercing sounds, bloody and lifeless limbs, unappetizing food/vomit and mental insanity
dim lighting, constant use of black and red colors - symbolizing blood and gore and eternal darkness/hell
I liked the level of disgust and disturb in the scene of the "ghosts" vommiting and the part where I dipped the candy, ate it and drank the puke. The reaction from the audience proved that that scene was extremely disgusting and disturbing.
I think the play 'Diablo' is very innovative. I have never seen a play with virtually no language but still able to produce such an in depth plot. The suffering in the play is expressed in multiple ways and format but there was not a moment that I felt repetitive or bored.
The play reached its goal of making the audience feel disgusted and uneasy, for example, when one of the actors screamed, howled in pain; one of the actors became insane, and the scene of coughing up and drinking blood
The production is all about taking revenge from the Japanese girl from to those boys who witness the death of the girl. The Japanese girl take revenge by torturing them in different ways, like , for example, making them can't control themselves, doing something weird that they had never thought to be experienced. The atmosphere of the productiona is dark, and the lighting of the productipn create the mood for it.
My impression towards Diablo: Awesome
I really like the atmosphere an the tension that created through audio and movement instead of language, as if it delivered its theme clearly and let the audience interpret the rest.
Dark(stage lightings & bgm)
Mysterious(the unknown followers with white faces, mixture of Chinese and Japanese execution)
Creepy (the protagonists losing control of their body but does not realize what happened after they woke up)
The use wodden box was particularly original, it is utilized throughout the development of the play and clearly symbolizes the insanity and desire of the four main characters.
I particularly like the settings of this drama, the dim lighting creates a mysterious atmosphere. However the themes of nightmare and torture are too scary for me, specially the scene where roger becomes a mad dog and bite the fleshes he found.
The scene where the person drew all over himself, may symbolize one of the seven sins, lust. The laugh of that person was rather creepy and disgusting, it irritated and annoyed me.
The story of the play is unclear and remains a mystery even after the shows are finished. The play deliberately hides it'd true meaning to the audience to build a sense of discomfort.
visually shocking, provoking
The play was filled with visually provoking elements, including the lightnings, use of the space, exclusive props, use of shadows, transition effects and the action of the characters themselves. These are elements that are new to this school community and sending the audience to the edge of their sits
the act has created fear to the audience.
firstly all actors are perfrom in the dark. secondly it create fears to audience. for example the head of the girl had chopped off, the painful scream of actors. it also make us feel disgusting like the realistic of the vommiting.
i dont like how the way they have put into the play. although it had creates lots of sybomlism, it is difficult to see how they link to each other. the whole can be intereptate as a revenage of a janpanese girl
As a backstage for the play Diablo, im glad that we have all achieved our goals for theatre of cruelty, by seeing the the shocked faces from the audience.
Basically, Diablo is a play about revenge. Since so, the play is mainly dark. The absence of speeches in the play Diablo is vague and it allows the us, as the audience, to think about the significance of the play. It also emphases the idea of death. I personally love the setting and effects of the play. Yet, some of the scenes are disgusting and bloody.
"Diablo" is an unique play because there are two different styles in this play which is Theatre of Cruetly and Japenese Noh theatre to bring out the outstanding performance by mixing different variety elements. For instance, lighting, sound etc. These effect create a creepy And dreadful atmosphere in the play. Overall, the first impression for this play is nasty awful.
The director's intention for the play Diablo is to make the audience feel uncomfortable. By using sensuous imagery, especially visual and sound, a grusome atmosphere is produced. The play is structured into four sections. Each with a theme of the sins
As a drama performance, I think that the audience's reaction determines its success. I liked the play a lot because it freaks me out through the whole performance.
The production's use of sound effects instead of carrying out dialogues was able to leave a strong impression to the audience. It was able to bring out the creepiness and made it a remarkable performance.
