Just a heads up, someone left their script in List 110. I have it, and I can give it back to them, but for the next rehersal they should use the link to the script posted on the blog. You don't have to print it out, just study it. Everyone, remember to bring you scripts tomorrow. The Witches are called from 7 to 11. Remember to think about important characters to keep in the final production. We will be meeting in Barus and Holley 153.

Sorry I couldn't be here for the first part of the rehearsal. From what I understand, you guys continued playing the monster game, except with text added in. According to Arik, there was a *special moment* in thie middle, which he felt looked like the opening to the show. So good job. When I arrived, everyone was taking turns responding to impulses in their body while the others looked on. The important thing to remember from this exercise is to let one part of your body influence the rest, instead of just moving in isolation. The exercise was repeated to music, and then partners were added in. Eventually, the whole group joined in, which led to another *special moment*: the moving spoon/conga line. Arik tried to take a picture, but you guys moved on before he could get to it. He is planning on bringing a camera next time, but if anyone else wants to bring anything to document the rehearsals and post for the blog, feel free.

This exercise was followed by a roudy game of Macduffy. For those of you who weren't there, we started out playing Big Bootie but Shakespearified it: Instead of Big Bootie, you say "Macduffy", and instead of numbers, you choose a word from the text. In this case, the words were blood, heath, wounds, drunk, choke, and betray. Keep on thinking of words to use; they work best if they are one or two syllables. Finally, we ended with a game of word choice. The words chosen were prithee, hostess, betray, servants, heath, and wound.

Great job today everybody. Remember: only the Witches are called for tomorrow, in B&H 153. Bring your scripts. See you then!


Comments from Arik: We also did some swing dancing surrounded by that Impulse thing. It was hot. We also let the witches manipulate the bodies of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. This was post Mcduffy and pre word choice. Also, Hannah worked with Nick and Olivia using the "All For" exercise. They also talked about beats.
In other news: BACK YOU YOUR DATA! THE CURSE HAS MOVED TO TECHNOLOGY!!! Members of the cast and crew have recently had some computer issues. We have decided it is because of the curse. Best of luck to us all.
