Tuesday 23rd

Today we experimented with the idea of status lines. Essentially a line dividing two seperate places which could represent anything from status to emotion. We had to experiment with how we would behave when approaching and crossing these boundaries. Through our behaviour we would define these spaces and essentially create a psychological landscape which would hopefully reveal character behaviour. What these psychological spaces will hopefully do is get across the significance of crossing the space, for example when the Woodcutter steps into the audotorium or the Male Spectator confronts the Director on stage. These are momentous points of transition in the play and by defining the spaces and therefore showing how difficult they are to cross we would hopefully highlight this to the audience.

After playing around with this idea we had notes from yesterdays performance. We've discovered that the piece really relies on intensity. No space on stage is naturalistic and because of this we have free reign to go over the top. This is paticularly useful when reacting to the Civil War.
