DREAM - AN UPDATE: REHEARSALS

SO, REHEARSALS WITH THE DIRECTOR AND THE CAST HAVE BEGUN. IT WAS A WEIRD FEELING SEEING THE CAST 'EMOTIFY' IF YOU LIKE THE IDEAS AND IMAGES THAT WE HAD DRAWN WEEKS AGO.WE ALL ASSEMBLED IN FINSBURY PARK FOR A PRESENTATION OF OUR IDEAS (THE WHITE LEOTARDS WENT DOWN LIKE A LEAD BALLOON) AND THEN A READ AND SING THROUGH, BEFORE GETTING INTO REHEARSALS PROPER. WITH THE FLOOR MARKED OUT AND THE TIGHTS ON, THE ACTORS GOT INTO THEIR POSITIONS FOR LOTS OF ROLLING AROUND AND SINGING.IT ALL LOOKED RATHER MARVELLOUS. I HOPE THAT THE COSTUMES AND EVERYTHING COMES TOGETHER. ITS SUCH A RIDICULOUS SPACE AND AN UNCONVENTIONAL CONCEPT THAT THERE'S A LOT RIDING ON REHEARSALS, COSTUMING AND LIGHTING. DRESS FITTINGS THIS WEEK, AND THEN INTO THE COCHRANE PROPER FOR A GET IN NEXT MONDAY AND REHEARSALS.
