Warm up


  • have own voca & reference book
  • poem <Everything moves>(1997) by Jacques Lecoq

Theatre is what happens between the words.

Rachel Ellish
  • endure the silence
    • wait until someone to speak
    • just wait ‘that moment’ right before someone speak
    • when actor comes up the stage, audience don’t know what will happen next; they wait in silence
    • physical preparation
  • Lecoq said we must teach people (both actors and audience) how we observe the world

Movement is our primary language. Body never lies.

Rachel Ellish
  • silence is a root from the speaking grows
  • exercise) explore silence
    • aim : put your attention to other person
    • “Where does the movement come from?”
    • Stillness = being still = motionless
    • Not moving – a state of silence
  • each part of our body have many different information and meaning, it come from motivation or intention of ours
  • dramatic potential
  • Body keep telling us something
  • Lecoq said only gestures can justify because it contain meaning and imagination

Actors should train their body as they are huge containers of imaginary which can tell stories and information.

  • we “indicate” things
  • how do children learn to move? -> watch/observe and mimic/mime
    • video of a child
    • looking around, no hurry, taking all in
  • exercise) explore the world as a baby and sharing the experience
    • hard-working to being a baby
    • have new perspectives to see the world etc.
  • prepare exercise : Find 3 objects
    1. something meaningful to you
    2. happy to talk about it but it’s not the most precious
    3. just random thing


  • exercise) “Be a active listener”
  • “How do you convince someone with truth and lies?”
  • “Can you convince audience as an actor?”
  • filter your experience to your character
  • much more truthful and believable and realistic

You don’t have to be the character but you can just make a connection to it.

Rachel Ellis

It was warm and bright day & being quarantined for 11 days today. I got my hair dryer (finally. Because my card has been declined several times but it looks okay now) from Amazon UK.

I had orange juice a lot not only because the school serves us during quarantine but I heard Queen Diana always drink orange juice when she travel all over the country. I may not travel (literally lockdown myself in current situation) but I bet as foreigner, your body waste “the energy ” a lot in a different country as you should keep listen and talk and think in a completely different language that you’ve ever used before. In that situation, orange juice can help you with running your brain.

To be honest, I quite distracted these days due to many things going around. There is a old saying in India, which I was not born, “people have blind mind when their mind ain’t the present, but the yesterday or tomorrow”. So I’m trying to focus on “now” more than past or future.
