IN THE LOOP....
22nd May - 29th May 2017
We had a busy first week of intensive rehearsals, in the heat wave and all. All our actors worked incredibly hard, through the sweat and it resulted us in setting all of the physical movement in four days, which meant we could attempt a stumble through on the Friday. (Which turned out not to be as bad as we thought it would be!)
From Northern Soul, 80's Jam and beating up in Slow motion...
It's going to be such a great show!

It was a sunny Sunday morning and the Artistic Director thought it was a good idea to shoot a film... trailer.
It was such good fun to make, if even we were battling the sun dipping behind the clouds every five minutes. I think we got some good shots and the cast look amazing all together.
After 'Zöe Spielberg' wrapped the trailer, we had our first FULL cast rehearsal and the actors found it great to be able to show each other their scenes and monologues they had been working on separately and we started to add other people to each scene to really bring that ensemble effect into play.

Today we introduced the past to the present and worked on some of the last scenes in the play. Emily Thornton and James Demaine here working on bonding as grandson and grandma with Co- director Alexander Knott dishing out the notes.

Today we had the wonderful Aaron Price and Rubie Ozanne working on the 80's section. As they are reprising 'The Boy' and 'The Girl' was when they last performed the parts all the way back in September 2016, it was a real test to see if they could remember the words.... Luckily it went swimmingly, bar a fit of giggles from everyone in the room (it was a long day!) and we managed to delve deeper into the characters and explore different choices from when we did it last time.
Its very exciting and the guys are really bringing the characters to life!

Working with a minimalistic set was always in the idea for LOOP, letting the movement and words do the talking.
These were constructed by the wonderful 'Big Stevie G', who knocked them together in as little as five hours. WHAT A LEGEND
OFFICIAL DISCLAIMER From the Company..
"We ARE aware of the Irony of these boxes, as many have already stated that BoxLess is now BoxFull. We would like to make it known that our company is focused on thinking outside of the box and not conforming to the restrictions of a certain dancer stereotype. Whereas, the boxes for LOOP are easy moveable pieces of set and pedestals for the actors."
We understand it is extremely ironic, but we know you'll get over that.
26th April 2017
Today we had Actor, James Demaine in to rehearse the 00's section, where he is playing 'The Young Man'. It involved 2 hours of thumping Techno music but he's a joy to work with, always comes into rehearsals prepared, rehearsal garments and lots of ideas!
Make sure you're booking your tickets before its too late!

FLYERS, FLYERS, EVERYWHERE.
Today we got our posters and flyers for LOOP, designed by our friends Old Glory Design Co. and Amy Goffin, who did a fab fab job, don't you think?!
Look out for the flyers popping up around London!

Friday night we had our first read through, which went incredibly well. We worked our way through the script and got use to the characters. Played music through the era's and I scared the boys with the fact they will have to learn how to Northern Soul.
It's all very exciting.
