Terms in this set (3)
The purpose of this exercise is to test those things that send us from one place to another, that determine the logic of physical life.
Explore two to three minutes of your behavior in the pursuit of a simple task, taking into careful consideration the criteria set out in the exercise sheet. Choose circumstances that necessitate an entrance from the wings into the playing area and eventually an exit into the wings.
Keep in mind:
• While occupied with the task on stage, you may also choose to leave momentarily to get or leave something in another room before reentering the playing area.
• As in all of the exercises, your story should have a clear beginning, middle and end.
• In the examination of your selected actions, put your destinations under a microscope to discover how many are consciously motivated, how many occur by reflex, and which of them are subconsciously instigated.
