I really enjoyed getting to do something outside of mirror exercises today. Even if it was something as simple as brushing my teeth.
Class today what a lot of fun. Doing the different activities was pretty enjoyable and throwing the ball around and pretending it was heavy or hot was pretty interesting to see how we all sort of dramatized it. Also, have to say Jennaka was pretty interesting as well!! =)
I think it is difficult to act like you are doing something when you have no physical materials to work with. For example, the whole playing tug of war with no rope involved a lot of factors. You had to hold the rope as if there was tension and look like you were exerting force without looking fake. It is not easy.
I thought that class on Tuesday was what the whole course was going to be about. It was more acting. Like when we had to pretend to play tug of war. I never realized the detail in just pretending to tug on a rope, especially with the hands. It just goes to show that there is a lot more about acting that what we think!!!
