Next Rehearsal Notes and To Do LIst

For next Sunday 10/6  please do the following:


  • Bring 1 or two items that we can play with for the dance: ie a large book, or basket, or bottle something that we can use for animation.
  • post songs to the Facebook group for the different elements: earth, air, water, and fire.
  • Pin images of the elements to the Pinterest Board so we can use them for animation ideas.
  • Make some sketches for the projections – NIki/ Chewy
  • Chewy will reserve a projector, camera and lighting kit for rehearsal.

Sunday Meeting Plan and Inspiration

Here is a tentative plan for our Sunday Meeting/Workshop  at 2pm in D12 which is where we met for class

(feel free to add to this or alter as you would like)

1. Check In – Lets all have a quick check in about what skills we can contribute to the project and what we would like to get out of it. Someone will take notes for the blog.

2. Movement Improvisation- Lets do a structured movement movement improvisation with the performers for a few minutes to see how people interact and work with each  other. I can take notes and notice dynamics of the group and lead as needed.  We can use the music people have brought in as a guide.

3. Lets all discuss the findings of the improvisation and what we learned about each other and some potential characters of moments we can film for the piece.

4. Lets discuss the story we see developing and get a rough idea of narrative structure.  Someone or a team will volunteer to make a storyboard.

5. Lets plan the next meeting and timeline for filming.

Here is a video of a fun theater/animation piece I saw in Edinburgh which inspires me!
