You know what’s great about falling flat on your face? Nothing really. But after that happens to you, nothing else can really go wrong.
If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, it’s because someone, namely me, got a bit too adventurous in today’s rehearsal when performing lifts for Game Face ’s opening scene and my first try of the evening went horribly wrong and ended up with me face down in Rehearsal Room 3. I don’t want to give too much away, but if you heard loud banging, shouting, screaming, a bit of ambient music and the occasional shout of pain; it was probably Curve Young Productions.
Today’s rehearsal was great though. With the actors, technicians and marketing team coming tgether, there’s definitely a strong sense of Curve Young Company in the building. It’s amazing to see short scenes and exercises that we’ve been working on since October, where we’d wonder “Why are we doing this? What’s our director up to?!” suddenly turn into a piece of theatre and guess what? We still have so much more to go.
I know this is the first rehearsal blog post for Game Face, but I won’t get into too many details (just yet!) on what it’s about. Check the website yourself. Whilst you’re at it, you can book your tickets for the show too! After the success of ‘3am’ last year, tickets are guaranteed to sell out fast.Olivia Mae Foong is a member of Curve Young Productions and currently in rehearsals for the Curve Young Company show GAME FACE (5-7 July).
