下北沢 Act in 英語 ７月１０日
Our new time - 10:00-12:00 - was, indeed, confusing.
Two returning champions came for the workshop on time and two more showed up at 12:00 - too late to participate but in time to sit down for something to eat and conversation. We hope to have everyone on board for our next 下北沢 workshop ８月１４日 again 10:00-12:00.
Our mighty duo ran through a blank scene to figure out how to react to the MacGuffin - Alfred Hitchcock's term for the plot device that gets the action started - and to each other. The scenes were fun, silly, interesting, and finally quite thoughtful.
After the break we ran a scene from Ordinary People. A very tricky bit of business as it appears light on the surface and desperately sad below. The final version was at least 80% of the way to performance level. Not bad for less than 30 minutes of practice...
Hope everyone enjoys their summer vacation time!
