No need to reinvent the wheel

Today is rehearsal #2 for the second installment of Art In Motion.  A blank page of “what do we create?” is yawning before me. These first rehearsals are full of promise, but also daunting. Where do we start from? Sure, the show will come from the cast, but how do I get them started? I’ve been puzzling over this all day.

Then, I remember I’ve had this feeling before (it starts with a feeling). In fact, this is always the feeling at the beginning. So no need to reinvent the wheel. Where have I gone from here, before?

Start off broad. Let them in on the big picture, have them ponder all the possibilities. Then, bring it back to the minimal, the mundane. Make it individual. Have them tell a story. A small one.
