Design Class Dump

This is King Lear and the day we suspended 300 needles from thread from a ceiling. We then used strobe lights of two speeds to light the needles. It really does look better in real life. It’s also by far my favourite design. This was by Aisyah, Sherri, Dex and myself.

This is in a rehearsal space and the design for our composition class for Death of a Salesman.  I don’t know how I feel about it yet, but naked light bulbs being suspended – always cool. This was by Gokul, Aisyah, Dex, Sherri, Wendy.

Alright, I’ll update again soon.

My artist also hates me now. I took her out on one date and never called her again. I’m a terrible person. 😦

 

Pirandello and Packages

Oh yay – first (official) post in my new site! I still have loads to edit on the ‘blog’ section, getting everything organized, but have some life updates! I also know I should be working on my essays, but y’know, heh.

So today was the opening night of the Year 3 Acting show, “6 Characters in Search of an Author” by Luigi Pirandello, directed by Natalie Hennedige from CAKE. The  process was different from all the previous shows. A 70ish minute show with all 12 of us mostly on stage – Different. A whole different ball game. I had problems with my character at the start, trying to find a fiction that was interesting enough so I wouldn’t space out on stage. I would say Grotowski’s psycho-physical actions helped a lot. Thanks Adam. Haha.

Every time I’m back in the theatre the more I’m sure this is where I’m meant to be.

So yes, before opening night we had an open dress, which was the run where people from the Acting/Musical Theate/T+P/lecturers would watch our run. It was like all open dress runs – warm, loving audience.

Today’s #ootd. It was a pretty awesome hair day. I also need to invest in a full-length mirror. Haha.

Anyway, dressing room pictures!

Sherri and Wendy, with their hoodies.

The entire cast got opening night flowers + chocolates from Natalie! Ahhh why is she so sweet? -sob-

Wendy, bear hoodie, flowers. I feel the need to put on a Scottish accent a la “Brave” whenever I say the word “bear”.

Anyway, opening night was good! I thought it went pretty well! ^_^ I also went home to… PACKAGES IN THE MAIL YAY!

Charmed episodes, Dark Shadows (from HollywoodClicks.com, a very nifty DVD rental site, I’m still unsure on how I feel about it),  a top, kitty dust plug on my phone, my postcard back from Adam (class exercise), and cookies my mom bought! #happy

Look at the widdle kitty on my phone! :3 N’gawww…

Alright, back to trying to do my thesis reading and intercultural theatre essay. -deep sigh-

Wish me luck.
