Almost Maine rehearsals are in full swing-a-ling! This specific play contains many transitions between unrelated scenes.  Since I cannot abide blackouts and continually work from a place rooted in ensemble and "group mind" I've asked the actors to help me develop movement sequences between scenes that involve the entire company.

 Tonight, the actors were given a song to build a piece around that had to include the following: a moment of extreme distance, a moment of close proximity, a moment occurring off the floor, 2 different forms of embrace, an entrance and exit (a la Anne Bogart). They had 25 minutes alone in a room with no director, here is what they came up with.  Enjoy!
