Anyone in the world

On Wednesday Sanaa and I were able to have our coaching session with Rebecca! The session had to take place in a class room because the blackbox was in use, but this change in environment turned out to be very beneficial for us! We were so stuck in the original blocking of the script that Sana and I could not manage to make the scene feel more grounded. When we were forced to rehearse in a new environment and with different props, our scene seemed to flow much more smoothly. This improvement in our grounding of the scene should also be credited to Rebecca. Rebecca gave us the advice of having intent with every movement we make. Progressing through the scene with this advice in mind helped Sana and I to focus less on the script, and truly react in a "pinch,ouch" manner! I can not wait to perform and show everyone the improvements we have made!
