Ede anglais Workshop B7 12/04/2016

Hello everyone!

In the last lesson, Joe replaced our teacher Hanna. He  has a different way of working, we did other exercises and he taught us some methods to interpret our roles. As he sees the character differently from Hanna he showed us  things to play, now we have a lot of possible interpretations for just one character. With his exercises, we talked a lot, we laughed and I think that EDE improved our relationships with other students.

EDE anglais Workshop A6 05/04/2016

First we did Act 4 scene 1 : Josephine, Lucas A, Marine, Mathilde, Roger and Anaëlle played.  Joe gave some advice to Lucas and Josephine to improve the scene (speak louder, the position, gesturing, emotion, action…). Lucas tried to play a donkey but it was difficult for him. Mathilde and Marine worked on their entrance, Marine did somersault and Mathilde turned around. We practised this scene for 1 hour.

During the second hour we did some games: we walked with eyes closed to help Lucas K, Ninon, Alexia and Tim for their characters because they will have to do that in the play for scene 2.

It was interesting to see the improvement between the last session and this session because the actors played better (they got in the mind of the character).  However, some students didn’t play and it was too long for them.

EDE anglais Workshop B6 29/03/2016

Last Tuesday, we worked on the direction of some scenes. Hanna told us how to walk, talk and act. She gave us some advice on the pronunciation of certain words because a few of them are difficult to say, because it is Shakespeare's language,  and it is complex.

Then we briefly mentioned the costumes that we will be wearing during the performance. Indeed, as we are two different groups working on the same play, some of us have the same role. That is why we need to find a costume which will make the link between the role of the two different actors, so the spectators will not be lost with the characters.

For example, the character of Hermia is played by two girls : Justine and Rania. So they need to wear a dress  the same color or to hold the same prop.

Also, last Friday we went to Paris to see a play called “The Hound of Baskervilles” which is a detective story about Sherlock Holmes’ investigation. It was interesting to see how they managed to transform an old book into a modern play with humor and suspense at the same time. There were only four actors but seven characters which was a nice example for us about playing different roles.

EDE anglais Workshop B5 15/03/2016

In the last workshop we rehearsed our parts of the play, Hanna helped us with the pronunciation,  the movements and the actions.

We were all really serious and liked it, so we did some choreography  in order for  the play to be more funny and interesting.

At the beginning of the lesson we did some training.  We had to act with the music. For example, if  Hanna put romantic music we had to walk like  romantic people. It was so funny !!!

After we did our parts and listened to the people who said their part, if we wanted we could give some advice on the action.

EDE anglais Music and costumes for the play

Anna has to do a monologue for a few minutes. We wanted her to sing it. She agreed because she sings well and she likes it.

Aline and Annaëlle will accompany her with a piano. They will create a melody together. There are other musicians like Timoté, Lucas K or Alexia.

The costumes have to be classical because of the subject of the play.

However, the nobles can wear a crown, chains... The lovers can be in white with red details like flowers or hearts. The fairies can wear green clothes.

EDE anglais Workshop A4 08/03/2016

First, we did warm up games.

We started with “Zip, Zap, Boing!” In that game, we had to be focus on the voice of each other and to be fast and precise. We learned to work as a team and to continue to play even if we made mistakes.

“Show must go on!”

Then, we worked in pairs to pull our partner imagining there was a string between the hand and a part of the body (like the nose) of the other. That game made us put (for example ears, nose, shoulders…) ahead of our body to show if we were proud, powerful or curious.

Finally, these games helped us to interpret our characters according to the different feelings, positions and the speed of the body. For example, if you’re sad you walk slowly and your head is lowered whereas when you’re angry you walk fast and your shoulders are back.

EDE anglais Workshop B4 16/02/2016

On the 16th of February,  Hanna was feeling better,  so we could carry on with our rehearsals for the play.  Before rehearsing our roles, we did the usual preparation exercises with a ball and the way we walk, for example like a sumo or like a ballet dancer. Then, each group of students played their scene and we worked a lot about the way that we would incarnate our characters. For example, we decided the gestures that we would have to do and the tone that we would have to speak in.

EDE Anglais Workshop B3 02/02/16

For the 2nd of February, the group was asked to learn their lines corresponding to the parts they were given. Unfortunately, Hanna, the actress, wasn't present because she was ill. 

As a result, Mme Hue had to take care of the group that day. When the session began, we were asked to act out our parts in front of our classmates. The scenes were acted out in order to practise the first act, the second act and half of the fifth one. This went on for about an hour and a half and we had a great time. This was the first time we had practised all the scenes and it was quite successful.
 Finally, during the last half hour, the whole class discussed how we were going to organize ourselves for the music, the costumes and the setting of the play. All in all, this session was very satisfying!
