Week Three finished up strong and we’re into our last week before loading into the HERE Arts Center Mainstage for tech.  Check it out- Week in Review:

Friday, January 22

Okwui worked through the opening for Act III with Tal and Jane building cues madly through the course of the day.  These sequences are intricately designed in conjunction with script and acting discoveries on a daily basis.  The full cast joined in the afternoon to work through Act III.  Seeing the piece in larger chunks is beneficial and also raises contanst questions.

Saturday, January 23

Today we revisitied Act II, working through the end beat by beat before we ran the show from top to almost bottom!  We’re, um, a bit over time but, no worries… early stages…

Rudy and Irene.  Stephen and Ana.  There were sparks all day.

All I can remember from today was major conversation about the ending.  WHAT HAPPENS TO LEDA? is a question still debated in this rehearsal room; raising it effectively keeps everyone in the room at the emotional stakes we hope our audience will find during the performance.

Wednesday, January 27

Today we began work on our closing sequences for each act which  heavily involve video and sound similar to our opening sequences.  The past rehearsals have emphasized finding parallels, reflections, and echos between scenes and the video is clarifying these attempts throughout.  Oh, and we choreographed cake sex.

More rehearsal photos to come!
