So, this week Ziantae and I met twice outside of class to rehearse for our performance on Wednesday (Thursday and Sunday). It has been a little difficult to meet up and rehearse because Ziantae lives off campus and I live off, but we also have different class and extracurricular schedules. Well, we are still trying to meet as much as we can until our final performance. Looking at our rehearsals so far, I would say our biggest challenge is being able to assert the right the right relationship between the father and son. We are both trying to focus on our objectives, but sometimes it can make it harder to understand the way in which we should say a specific line. Also, another big challenge we are trying figure out is the movements within the scene and how to make them feel and look natural. Our scene is somewhat stagnate, so we are trying to figure out how to add texture and movement. With that being said, I would say, in terms of our lines for Wednesday, we are pretty much memorized, but we are still consistently going over the script. The process has been so much thus far, though!
