The rehearsal space is a sanctuary. In it, artists are free to share and explore without judgement. With that reverence in mind, it is imperative to remain cool and collected during the rehearsal process. Although frustration may emerge, maintain an easy demeanor. Any signs of opposition will hinder the process and create a barrier between the artists. Remember that art is collaboration, so welcome any idea with an open mind, freely exploring each beat. Through exploration and exercise, choices will be made and decisions finalized. Characters will develop and scenes contextualized. Remain free and relaxed, knowing that each decision made is a collaborative effort with an ensemble concept. Keep cool. It’s a fun process; enjoy the ride.
Some thoughts on art, life, and theatre. Stay positive.
