Friday 26th

Notes from the run. We need to increase the uncomfortable silence at the start of the play. Then build on it.

We've come up with the idea of characters leaving prevous characters behind. So for example when Carl leaves as the First Spectator but then returns as the Woodcutter we want there to be a sense that he is the same person and that he has undergone a mini death to return. This creates an interesting idea about which character you actually are and how much you use this to hide yourself. 

The idea that characters have to create their own reality, something real and true to them. For example when Spectator two kills the Worker it is an act he can understand.

The idea of the Spectators being more performative. For example when I confront Jay about the revolution, I should actually get up on stage. This creates the idea that the Speactator has to perform in order to put his ideas across but the audotorium is the wromg place for it, so he needs to enter a performative space in order to perform. this is echoed by the behaviour of the Woodcutter who makes his speech in stage and then crosses into the audotorium after he leaves acting behind.
