The Happenings of Anna Sycamore DeMers
Directing: Annie Baker's CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION, was a new adventure in approaching a script with more "naturalistic" style of dialogue with Margolis Method and devising processes. During our 4+ weeks of rehearsal, the students and I focused on finding the authenticity of the characters' based on the specific stage directions and dialogue as presented by playwright Baker. Within the distinction of "pauses, long silences" and other directives, we explored elements of Margolis particularly to enliven the isolated moments between two characters, focusing on "cause-absorb-and-effect," tracking "lines of energy" and distinguishing between "private/public worlds."
