TPO54 Conversation1听力材料文本

Title: Story Theater

Listen to a conversation between a student and a professor of her theater class.

Student: So, Professor Baker, about our next assignment you talked about in class.

Professor: Yes, this time you’ll be in groups of three, each of you will have a chance to direct the other two in a short scene from a play you’ve chosen yourself.

Student: Right, and, well, I’ve been reading about story theater, and…

Professor: Ah, story theater, tell me about what you’ve read.[a1]

Student: Well, it’s a form of theater where folk or fairy tales are acted out. It was…eh, introduced, by the director Paul Sills in the 1960s. In Sills’s approach, an actor both narrates, and acts out a tale. So, like someone will appear on stage, and then will start narrating a tale, about…say a king, and then the same person will immediately switch to and start acting out the role of the king, with no props or scenery.

Professor: Sills, you know I actually saw his first story theater production in 1968, he did the fairy tale ‘the blue light’.

Student: Really, so whatever gave him the idea to produce that?

Professor: Well, as you know, back in the late 1960s, lots of people in the United States were disillusioned with the government. Sills was grappling with how to produce theater that was relevant in such times. Then he happened to read ‘the blue light’, and he realized that it had just the message he wanted.

See, in the story, a man has lost all hope as a result of the unfortunate events in his life, completely turns his life around, with the help of a magical blue light. So,the blue light in the story symbolizes a way out of seemingly unsolvable human problems.[a2] And for Sills, that light symbolized an answer to the political turmoil in the US.[a3]

Student: But weren’t you…um, audiences bother that the actors were performing on a bare stage?

Professor: Well, story theater is a departure from traditional dramatic theater with its realistic elaborate props and scenery, but Sills could make us see, say a big tall mountain through the facial expressions and body movements of the actors, and they’re telling of the story.

We were all swept up, energized by such an innovative approach to theater, even if one or two of the critics weren’t as enthusiastic.[a4]

Student: Cool, so, anyway. What I really wanted to ask, I’d love to try doing story theater for my project instead of just a scene from a traditional play.[a5]

Professor: Um, that’s possible. A short tale can be about the same length as a single thing. Which fairy tale would you do?

Student: Actually, I was reading about another director of story theater, Rack Stevenson. You know, he produces plays based on folk tales as well. Maybe I could direct one of those.

Professor: Okay, yes, Rack Stevenson. Now, Stevenson’s style’s story theater is a little different from Sills’s. He’ll use simple props, a chair will represent a mountain, but the significant difference is with the narrator. The narrator will play only that role. Let’s talk about why.[a6]

TPO54 Conversation1听力题目与解析

1、Why does the student go to see the professor?

A. To learn about the background of a director who was discussed in class

B. To ask permission to use a specific type of theater for her class assignment

C. To discuss the symbolism in a play she wants to use for her assignment

D. To find out what scenery she is allowed to use in presenting her assignment

答案:B

解析:本题为目的主旨题,题目问学生去见教授是为了什么?学生一开始询问教授下一个作业任务,提到故事戏剧,进一步询问能否将故事戏剧作为任务。B选项的意思为: 为她的课堂任务采用一个特别的表演模式来征求同意。结合全文可知,正确答案为B。

A选项是了解一个课堂中讨论过的一个导演的背景。听力中虽然出现了美国的政治背景,但是那是《蓝光》的写作背景,并不是导演的背景,并且那只是学生和教授对话的一部分,并不是学生去见教授的目的;

C选项是讨论一个她想在她的作业中用到的戏剧中的象征手法,全文完全未提及;

D选项是为了找出一个她可以用于她的任务的场景。文中并没有提到这个观点。

2、Why does the professor discuss the political environment in the United States in the 1960s?

A. To compare events at that time to events that occurred in one of Stephenson’s plays

B. To suggest that the woman do additional research on that period of United States history

C. To point out why political themes are common in folk and fairy tales

D. To explain Sills's inspiration for his first story theatre production

答案:D

解析:本题为组织结构题,题目问教授为什么要讨论20世纪60年代的美国的政治背景?对话中提到了20世纪60年代美国很多人对政府失望,而Sills希望做出和时代关联的戏剧,《蓝光》的故事情节,就是他对美国政治动乱的答复,所以提到时代背景是为了解释Sills第一部故事戏剧的灵感来源于哪里,则答案为D。

A选项的意思为:为了将那个时代的事件和Stephenson戏剧中的事件进行比较。后面虽然对Stephenson和Sills的故事戏剧进行了比较,但并不是教授讨论政治背景的目的,故排除;

B选项的意思是:为了表明女生做了关于那个时期美国历史的调查研究。这个属于无中生有,望文生义了,故排除;

C选项的意思是:为了指出为什么政治主题在民间和童话故事里是非常常见的。这二者之间没有因果关系,故排除。

3、According to the professor, what does the blue light in the fairy tale called "The Blue Light" represent?

A. A plan that is impossible to follow

B. A conflict between two opposing forces

C. A solution to complex problems

D. A question that has no clear answer

答案:C

解析:本题为细节题,题目问“根据教授可知,在名字叫《蓝光》的童话故事里,蓝光象征着什么?”由出题点可知,“在《蓝光》里,蓝光象征着能解决人类不能解决的问题的方法”,则答案为C。

A选项的意思为:一个不可能遵守的计划,对话未提及故排除;

B选项的意思是:两个对立力量之间的矛盾,对话未提及故排除;

D选项的意思是:一个没有明确答案的问题,对话未提及故排除。

4、What is the professor's opinion about Sills's production of The Blue Light ?

A. He thinks that it was an inventive and powerful performance.

B. He believes that the use of some props would have enhanced the performance.

C. He thinks that the theme is even more relevant today than it was in the 1960s.

D. He believes that it was less effective stylistically than some of Stephenson's plays.

答案:A

解析:本题为态度题,题干问“教授怎样看待Sills的作品《蓝光》?”,由出题点可知人们都被这种创新的戏剧方法所震惊、鼓舞,则答案为A。

B选项的意思为:一些道具的使用可以提高表演,虽然教授提到了道具的使用,但没有说这些道具加强了演出效果,故排除;

C选项的意思是:他认为相比20世纪60年代,故事的主题更适合于当代,对话未提及故排除;

D选项的意思是:他认为这些作品在形式上没有Stephenson的作品有影响力,不存在这种比较关系,故排除。

5、According to the professor, what is the most important difference between Stephenson's and Sills's style of story theatre?

A. The actor who plays the role of the narrator plays only that role in Stephenson’s productions.

B. The actors wear elaborate costumes in Stephenson's productions.

C. The stage settings are realistic in Stephenson’s productions.

D. Political themes are avoided in Stephenson’s productions.

答案:A

解析:本题为细节题,题目问“根据教授可知,Stephenson和 Sills的故事戏剧的最大不同点是什么?”,由出题点可知,“Stephenson式的故事戏剧的风格和Sills的只有一些小地方的不同,Stephenson使用简单的道具,一个椅子可能代表一座山,但是,最大的不用是在于讲述者,旁白将只扮演一个角色。”则答案为A。

B选项的意思为:在Stephenson的作品里,演员穿着华丽的服装,对话未提及,故排除;

C选项的意思是:在Stephenson的作品里,舞台设置是现实主义的,对话未提及,故排除;

D项的意思是:在Stephenson的作品里,政治主题是避而不谈的,对话未提及,故排除。
