What an awesome class. It’s melting my brain. His Resume is insane, I’m so jealous of his life, in a way. We did some exercises.
- Starting in the middle of a scene based on anyone else’s “shape” in the circle - directing your first line to that person. Shape = body position
- Starting a scene that same way, but continuing on
- Focus on maintaining the established P.O.V. (“you’re so relaxed” vs. “No I’m not”) until a clear ‘breath’ moves the emotion somewhere else.
- Giving your scene partner their opening line (based on shape) then listening for a loaded word that sticks out so you can RESPOND to it.
that’s something I’ve struggled with since college - not trusting my own instincts because I’m so worried about being “right” for the authority figure. I’m mostly guessing that that person is my view of God.
I also had this other thought while I was contemplating this struggle I have with authority. “If you don’t believe in God, you can’t go to Him for help. :(.
