Worksheet 6 Reflection:
This worksheet asked us to make note of various starting points for our devising process. We had already done this in the first stage of our brainstorming, and so we simply recorded the majority of those on the handout. It did serve a purpose further than this, in that we had to think about other starting points we had discussed since we started acting, and reflecting on this was quite helpful.
Worksheet 7 Reflection:
This worksheet asks us to develop a few activities to supplement the devising process. The way we talked about how to go about this is to select one of our themes and come up with a number of activities to explore that theme. We already kind of do this, when the main actors in our group discuss various themes and Espen writes a rough script for a scene based on their thoughts.
Reflection on Week:
This week we have been trying to narrow down our ideas a bit to get to a more concrete base, in order to begin truly working on developing scenes for our piece. On Tuesday, Espen and I sat and mostly listened to the other three talk about themselves and their identities and memories while Espen and I took notes: regarding script, in his case, while I though about possible lighting for the scenarios. I believe this will help us move our piece forward and create a piece that has the themes we want, but can still be understood.
