(That’s super polite, super feminine geisha speak for “Bitches, listen up!”)
So, I’ve taken the leap and signed up for the Kabuki voice and movement classes. I’m going ahead with this thinking that I’ll just have fun with it, try my best in class, and try to enjoy it the best I can. I’m nervous about the fact that, since this cannot be my priority, as I have tons of readings and such to do, I likely won’t be practicing much outside of class, and here’s hoping that I won’t fall too far behind.
I knew if I didn’t do this, I would absolutely regret not being involved in the play, and not having learned it. Every time I go to the theatre, I come out feeling like I’m in that certain mode, in their world, and I want to move like them and chant like them. I want to repeat the lines, and such. But I know I don’t know how to do it right… so for that benefit alone, and for the ability to, in future, demonstrate it a little to friends or future students…
So, yes, I’m really nervous about it, but what can you do? I just hope that I don’t start falling too far behind, or in any way risk doing poorly on the courses, thus affecting my GPA.
There will be times later in the term that I will have papers and such, and I just really hope I’m not biting off more than I can chew.
