“Tamar and the River”

I began rehearsals for the workshop of Tamar and the River at Signature Theatre today.  The reading is part of the 21/24 Project, where the theatre hosts actors in intensive training and rehearsals to put a brand new script on its feet for the first time.  Marisa Michelson wrote the score and many of the words.  Book by Josh Cohen.

Fellow cast:

Erika Rose

Rachel Zampelli

Jesse Carrey Beaver

Jake Odmark

Evan Casey

Lindsay Roberts

Nickolas Vaughan

Margot Bassett

Amy McWilliams

Craig Wallace

Margo Seibert

with Gabe Mangiante on piano and our boy Alvaro on drums.

Learning a method called Free Singing, which is a technique of producing vocal sound with minimal muscular involvement.  No jaw, no abdomen, no shoulders, no face, no chest.  Only lungs and diaphragm.

Ensemble-building exercises following intros to many faces who are new to me.
