Informed Gesture

Tonight we staged "How Say You Maiden Will You Wed" and "’Tis Done! I am a Bride!" with Point, Elsie and Cholmondeley.  Great focused work and meticulous note-taking from all concerned.  Both of these are being approached as "acting" songs so the staging is designed to advance the story and to reflect the characters’ changing emotional states.  Actually, I think that should be true in the staging and delivery of all songs.  But, while primary focus tonight was on timing and execution of the movement, we will eventually put more and more emphasis on the quality of the movement and on the development of informed gesture.
