Moments of Magic
Week Sixteen: Rehearsal Risk
Happy Thursday! Welcome back to Acting Class Daily. Today we’re personalizing the work with a themed knicknack from this week’s class, a formative moment of magic … and, most importantly, Bauer’s chance to say hello.
Romeo and Juliet (Elysium Conservatory Theatre - 2017)
I know my directing talent lies in my imagination’s ability to fight off every no, every impossible, and stick with my instincts wherever they lead.
This playground of possibility reveals our way to “yes” … shows how something can be possible … and gives me vision to guide rehearsal, and direction to get us there.
Forgive the audio, my friends (theatre, warehouse, you get it) … here’s a taste of the imaginative hand-off and shared Actor’s Faith filling the art of rehearsal:
Taking a cast willing to really go for it with a first rehearsal idea …
To everyone so imaginatively alive at dance call, just before our opening night …
To finding the freedom within form of a fully realized vision …
Here’s a look at 3 year old me (fresh off my first haircut!) … my taste of what appears when my Elysium Artist waits for me beyond the threshold.
