To make sure you are completely knowledgeable about your chosen genre/practitioner you need to be aware of (and research) the following aspects (as appropriate):
Evidence of exploration of the work of the chosen practitioner; identifying the key features of that work and justification of the choice of extract in the light of that exploration. To be supported by a bibliography/webliography/performance history/list of source and resources (as appropriate)
Evidence that you have explored and understood the work of that practitioner
Outline of dramatic intentions for the audience, in relation to the group’s interpretation of the chosen extract and the influence of the chosen practitioner
How you’ve used the ideas of that practitioner/company yourselves
Assessment of the rehearsal process and of the potential effectiveness of the piece for an audience. Evaluation of the development of the nominated skill in relation to both the chosen text and to the influential practitioner's ideas; awareness of health and safety factors.
Assessment account of the rehearsal process with analysis of the impact. The health and safety must relate to your piece specifically rather than a general account of health and safety in the theatre!
