In Voice class, we've worked on Northern Irish, Italian and French. After break, we do Estuary, then work-up dialects on our own, from interviews, to teach the class, after which we do the original research on a dialect to perform. Also in the mix have been scenes in Standard British and another cockney monologue.
In Movement class, we've so far experimented with solo and group-created movement pieces emphasizing selected elements--e.g., rhythm, shape, tempo, inventiveness--which will all come together in a final project at the end of term. After break, we also give twenty-minute presentations on a selected physical performer or troupe (I'm doing Pina Bausch.)
Over the break, most of us are also in rehearsals every day (I'm rehearsing Jacques in As You Like It.) This weekend, I audition for Aquecheek in Houston Shakespeare Festival's upcoming Twelfth Night (though I'm waiting on the official offer from another company, as well.) And last, but not least, I have my second prostate biopsy tomorrow morning.
All (or, almost all) of this is great.
