The activity that we did in pairs today was very fun to do. Now that we have been working with the idea of "substance" for a while I think it is getting a little bit easier to work with it on stage.
I thought everyone did a great job at working with their partner and actually visualizing the "substance" that they were working with. The activity that we did towards the end of class was very pretty difficult. It was hard to know what people were doing and what space they actually were in. Im sure if we did that exercise again it would go a lot smoother because we now realize that each thing that someone adds must be simple and communicated clearly to the audience.
class is def more fun when we act vs. meditate...but still we have been acting for a couple of weeks now and i still find it difficult...oh well!
So grabbing stuff out of the primordial ooze was good times on tuesday. I found it hard to work with the object right after I pulled it out of space, but overall I felt that the class did a great job. It is very hard to make the action realistic and honest, but I think with more practice it will become easier.
I enjoyed class. Messing with the stretchy substance was hard. I think it might be from going first, and not having any fresh ideas. But oh well I guess. I was proud of my ring in a box deal.
