“Contrasting” defined

  • Contrasting monologues and songs are represented by two truly diverse characters with two distinctive goals in very different situations from varied genres of shows.  Be sure it doesn’t feel like the same person on a different day or in a different mood, and that the heart of your pieces are unrelated to each other.  The more differences there are, the more contrasting it becomes. Contrast can exist in character, objective, genre, situation, type of language, movement demands, emotional range, mood or tone of the speech, and/or accent.
