Juliana LoPiccolo 5th Week Blog Post

This week we continued to block our scenes for Macbeth. We gave the Osher participants an opportunity to contribute to the staging so that they could experience leadership with their roles. The Osher participants were so excited to contribute their thoughts to the staging and we got through blocking for the first two scenes in our section. We also talked about the meaning of each scene and how the staging impacts the significance of the scene. Although we did not get through the blocking for our entire section I think the time we spent going through the scenes in depth and talking about the motivations of each character was very helpful towards the Osher participants’ understanding of the overall play.  I am excited to finish blocking our portion of the play during next rehearsal. I am also looking forward to choreographing the fight scene within our section!
