Other Skills I Used To Develop My Scene
Move in a different way
(D) - As we were on a boat we had to make this believable. Someone on a small rowing boat couldn't move around flamboyantly, even small movements we kept to a minimal because in real life turning around might tip the boat.
Completely different to being a fairy. We are convicts in the 16th century which says something about our working class and how we may have been brought up. It suggests the way we move and talk - not with perfect posture. Our personalities will effect this too.
Cockney accent - used video tutorials to help develop this and shared link with the rest of the group
Contribute to group
Bringing in costumes
Ideas of setting
Giving each other notes
Getting into character
Remembering characters objectives for scene ((D) Show to Harry her feelings at time / (M)Learning lines for play)
Thinking of background of character (where from, why here)
Thinking of character's circumstances - (D) Sentenced to death
Thinking about past experiences to connect to these emotions
Focussing on our targets and not other group rehearsals around us
Focussing on task in hand once there
Setting targets for rehearsal + sticking to these
Getting off script so movement is more free and natural, where as would be restricted with script in hand
Working outside of sessions
Group chat: Set up by me to discuss all relevant information. I set up to send link on Cockney accent. Also used to discuss costume ideas.
Helping Sol lean his lines by constantly going over them so he wouldn't make mistakes. He found learning his big part at the beginning challenging so I went through section by section so he had it learnt.
When Lucy and I switched characters
Even though we had done some research into all of the characters, we shared our notes on our former character to help one another get a quicker understanding of the new part we were playing. This included personality and what our own personal storyline was throughout the play.
Trusting that everyone would work
Each one of us would come focussed and ready to rehearse
