Practice Performance, and Introduction to swords

Today Mr. Wolfe introduced our swords... aka a stick in a pool noodle... After playing with these new props we incorporated them in our fight scene. Grant and I were the 2nd to go we had great eye contact and Mr. Wolfe actually thought grant hit me on a fake punch. We did it perfect I fell correctly and it look beautiful.

Stage Combat 16 Steps

Last Class we solidified our stage combat moves, we need to keep eye contact, and be slower. I feel that because we are brothers we have real fighting in our past so hopefully we are good at fake fighting

Stage Combat with my brother

Last class we were introduced to stage combat and I was lucky enough to convince my brother Grant to be my partner, we practiced slapping, kicking, punching, pulling hair, and may more violent acts. The idea of my brother and I fighting is normal but fake fighting will be hard, lets hope for Acting Classes sake I don't mistakenly hit Grant. I think it is very interesting how Mr.Wolfe taught us these moves, I hope we can execute them to the up most accuracy.

Wednesday Feb 15th

I feel the Love in the air, even thought it isn't valentines day. Today Diego Gomez and myself preformed 4 improv skits, one was about a father and son building a treehouse, the second was about two Itailian guys one named (Amerigo) Vespucci, and the other named (Christopher) Columbus attempting to run an Italian Restaurant. The third was about two American astronauts fixing a satellite. The forth was two men in a car shop talking about cars then getting in a car and listening to "Baby" by Justin Beiber. We received a 102 or a A-, B+.

Monday Feb 13

Today we started grading for the improv acting we have been practicing, Diego Gomez and I haven't gone yet but we hope to nail  our performance. The key to getting an A in this is spadework and not asking questions if we are  detailed and we don't get too nervous we should do fine.

1st Week of Feb.

This week we worked on Improv, what I have to think of is not using any imperatives and don't ask any questions. My partner and I need to develop the characters with mine and his first line. We cannot keep the audience guessing, we also need to do a lot of space-work to form the scene before we speak so the audience has an idea of what will happen in the scene.
