Trying New Things

Someone in town runs a workshop on how to dramatize concepts to improve art. At this point, I can only act out a monologue for my novel or act out two different characters. I tried this today. If you don’t fall over the cat or the couch, it does make the conversation more vibrant, and I saw how the characters position themselves or gesture with their hands.

I wonder if this lends itself more to drama. As Liz said to Richard Burton, You can’t.act on the screen the way you do on the stage. In other words, Down, Richard, down.
