REPORT DETAIL

How Can We Make a Show at MICHA
Conveners: Laura Standley and Lionel Walsh
Note Taker: Sean Cackoski
4:00 – 5:30, Day 1, The Tree

First Question: should we do a show?
Desire among participants to do so.
Concern expressed that it would be a lot of work in addition to participating in workshops
Others felt they could handle it if conditions were correct
Possibilities:
1. participants opt for The Pause and use the time to rehearse a short play (30 – 40 minutes).
2. possible to use 10 minute plays that would require minimal rehearsal
3. possible to use 2 minute plays from “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” by the Neo-Futurists. This way, it would not require people to take The Pause. They could simply use breaks and evenings to rehearse
4. possible to create a devised piece
5. possible to look at the stories of Anton Chekhov as a source for a play: www.eldrtichpress.org: 201 stories by Anton Chekhov
6. possible play is Afterplay by Brian Friel. It is 40 minutes long. Could look also at The Lady with Lapdog
A director could ask individuals s/he is interested in casting in a show they have chosen
An actor or group of actor could ask someone to direct them in a play they are interested in doing
A public call could go out to membership of MICHA.

Yon: his concern is when will I be ready to use the technique? This would be a way to experiment with the technique with experienced people without the pressures of a show produced for a paying public audience


Laura also noted that her group (Blue) felt they got to a place where they would have been willing to share the work but also felt a little intimidated at the prospect.
Craig mentioned that in the past there has been sharing of the work done in class and it was a lovely experience.
