Week 3 just ended, woohooo!! We’re getting closer and closer to our theater group’s show date and we’re all starting to get both nervous and excited! This week had a lot of impromptu acts going on and they were all SO MUCH FUN as we all got to know a little bit more about each other!
Say Whaaatttt? A Gibberish Conversation at Stage Camp 2012
Gibberish is communicating using various noises, illegitimate words, or random sounds. In short, it’s talking in complete and utter nonsense. Weird as that may sound, it’s actually a lot of fun! Moreover, it allows actors to practice expressing ourselves through our facial and body language more.
A Gibberish Act with (from L to R) Jen Tolentino as the translator, Karyl Factora as the Queen from a foreign land and AB Ferrer as the talk show host interviewing them
In the 3rd week of Stage Camp 2012, we all got to play around with our words as we began communicating with gibberish! At one point, the entire class was even asked to pretend to be in a shopping mall. What started out as individuals minding their own business, turned into one big group act as one member pretended to be a criminal! It was so much fun to see everyone just click and each story match into one big one!
Freeze!! Sing!! Play!! Act!!
We also played a bunch of games this week at Stage Camp 2012! Most of the games taught us how to think fast and just let things come out naturally. Thing is when we think of acting, most people THINK TOO MUCH. We think about how our body should look, where our hands should go, etc. Truth is, we just need to feel something and our body will automatically follow. INTERNALIZE! Does that make sense? (Hope it does)
At one point, we even had to practice our impromptus with our bodies as the class joined forces to make a BIG MACHINE! Check out this short video to understand what I mean! It was so cool to see this come to life!
