- Working in our devised groups
Today me and my group when to Dartford park to be inspired and re-write a few scenes. The scenes that we were working with didn’t flow and we felt they weren’t completely true to the characters, so this is what prompted us to re-write them . Being outside gave us a lot inspiration, Dartford Park had a war memorial, Band stand and big open spaces. Being in this environment helped us to really think what true intentions of the characters were and what the true essence of the characters were . We’ve made massive character discovery’s today and made huge leaps with the piece. How’s your day been ?
In regards to the conversation we had today
Josie you will need to nook in with Kathy Millar or Rosemary Keys over at student services,
Charlotte apparently you can go on to UCAS and request to defer, Have a look and let me know how you get on.
Warm up - Blake
- Working independently in devised groups
Today we all worked independently in our devised groups, our group decided that we would work on the monologues within the group and work the transition with the scenes, I feel we have developed our piece a lot due to the absences within the group and have done the best to move it on.
How have your pieces developed?
I came across this quote over the Easter break in my horoscope and I feel it applies in a the acting world in many ways for example as an actor we are always asked to find the inner meaning and truth behind the words, and looking at someone and making your own decision on the situation rather than handing it to them on a plate is a lot more interesting.
What are your thoughts on this quote?
Does it mean something different to you?
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!
A load of my people I know have started “Year Book Comities” in their respective schools and colleges.
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in helping me organise one for our company. Our time at the Miskin is coming to a close, and it would be nice to have something to remember it by other than what’s in our heads.
There will be some cost involved (more than likely), I just wanted to get a feeling for who would be interested in buying one and possibly helping me?
Hope everyone had a good Easter break and enjoys themselves today. How’s everyone’s Easter holidays been? Anyone done anything interesting?

* Easter Egg Hunt
Thank you to Carleigh and Claire putting all the effort in for the entire day! Although there were disagreements and many people found it frustrating as a whole it was nice to end the week with something fun and exciting and with the Intermediate Company. What did you think of the Easter Egg Hunt?
* Social Dance
Thursday 3rd April 2014
I really enjoyed the dancing, having the opportunity to go into it in more detail and with the entire company was beneficial. It was fun learning each move then practising it from one corner of the room to the other and then finally at the end of the workshop making a sequence and performing that; putting our practising to the test. How did you find the dancing?
* Devised pieces
* Watched ‘Behind the Battlefield’
Notes: More tension, music/gun shots set the scene, sound was absorbed to the floor, contrast in the scene, lost relationship between all three men, careful your spacing, could have used levels.
I was able to identify the characters and all three of you committed to them fully however I wasn’t able to see the relationship between the three soldiers. How did you find the scene from an audience’s view? Blake, Tommy and Chris how did you feel inside it?
