Magic for home:
Work on your Solos.
The intention of the solo is to establish yourself as a bigger-than-life character. This is your playground. With the character you create, you will be able to try things out that might take years in the real world.
Examples are good things:
My personal description:
I am a character who needs love but is scared to death that if I tell anyone, I'll be immediately rejected and that would be so much worse than just quietly being needy.
I am perceived as:
I believe that other people think I am shy and cute but nervous.
I perceive the world as being:
The world is scary and full of people who either know exactly what they want and how to get it or people who are shy and never get what they want. I'm the second type.
The world I want to live in is:
The world I want to live in is one where everyone cares about everyone else and they actively check in with eachother all the time. People would check in with me if i'm quiet, to see if i'm alright. Also, I'd feel more comfortable approaching other people because I'd feel supported and not fear rejection.
SO! pick one element in your true perception of love and blow it up big. If you're kinda excited about it, get REALLY excited in this character. Try to be as specific as possible.
Answer the above questions in the journal i gave you.
The solo should be 1 minute long and include at least 2, if not all of the following:
) embodiment/dance/movement on stage
) tone/music/singing/pre-recorded music/ideas for live music
) voice/text/acting/active voice/spoken-word
We'll be working on these solos for a couple weeks but soon I want to take the characters and start having them interact and creating their perceived and desired worlds, so the more solid your solo is for Sunday, the better.
You live in the world you create, actively and inadvertantly, so create the world you want to live in.
