October 26 notes:
We explored connections with our bodies. it’s interesting to me because in theater we have tools but our main instrument is our body. we were checking in with ourselves. We laid down in the dark and explored where we found tightness in our bodies. We took an inventory of our physical, mental and emotional self. This was beneficial because all parts of ourselves are brought to a character in a scene. Discussing the need to check in was entirely revived for me. No longer was this time in the dark simply to get away from school but an introverted analysis of myself making me better equipped to become a character.
