Day 11: Im fucking Knakered

I'm fucking knackered. But today was incredibly fruitful.

We've done the play from beginning to end, but with a twist.

We'd perform the scenes in the Boxing Ring of Dreams. If you weren't in the scene, you would be outside of the ring shouting the modern English translation of each thought back into the ring. The purpose is to see if you can communicate your lines to the audience. If we fail to provide a translation, you'd have to try and communicate it in a different way.

We also did a dance party to signal the entrances and exits.

Not only was it nice to see the play being done from front to back after all of the exploration we've done, the exercise helped clarify specific moments in the play. I.e., pinpointing the exact moment a decision is made, or when the beginnings of a certain character's plans start to come to fruition.

Things happen so quickly in this play. During a speech, a clock strikes one. Five parts of thoughts later, it strikes two. One hour goes by within five lines!?!?!?!?

Definitely having another early night tonight.
