It is the same with theatre. Today was an ideal example of how the idea needs to be altered to suit the environment. We normally rehearsed in a closed surroundings; but when we moved to a larger space things didn’t quite work out the way I expected it to. I’m still left wondering why a change in rehearsal space should result in a drastic change in the way the actors approach the subject, his dialogues, character and movements.
Should a mere addition of SFX, or a slight alteration of props, or even a larger space provided to the actors after a long session of rehearsal in a compact environment; result in a complete alteration in the way the actors gets into character? Should this affect the actors position in this situation? Is this a normal phenomena, that a slight change in environment results in a character loosing personality, thereby loose balance and topple over completely.
If I draw parallels to real life, and say, a slight alteration in my life or difficulties which suddenly drown me, does not change who I am; so why should it change a character?
Today, it altered everything.
