Autumn

Autumn

Autumn has come both in weather and in jobs! Last week we’ve started our rehersals both for Ryck upp dig with Teater Psykos and Binga with Strandteatern. Tuesday at Spenshult I held a quiz about Sweden, it was very successful! Then on Wednesday I had Yoga for women. I’ve also started working as a drama teacher for kids at Linehed school.

Saturday I was in Laholm rehersing Binga. We did some improvisation about three sisters walking in a sandstorm. It’s really interesting to work with your mind set on a goal (to get to the house) while your body works in opposition (caught in a sandstorm and pulling you back). You are your own obstacle! We are also working with the four rivers of Halland symbolizing the four elements. To music we improvised a water character so full of himself that he doesn’t notice his own decay and a fire persona who is completely burnt out. My personal favorite was the dramatical air, so sad that nothing can stop the roars of agony and tears. The last character was a bitter earth character who doesn’t want any contact with anyone. We had switched for some of the improvisation so Anna who usually plays Binga was the river and I interacted with her, trying to get her attention. It ended up looking like two angry children who tries to become friends again after a big argument, but neither of them want to be the first to say “I’m sorry”.

After rehersal we made a mold of my face in plaster, the mold will be used to make masks for the rivers. I’m looking forward to start working in mask again!
