Previously in theatre class..
introduced our strengths and interests to future teammates
sharing WOW moments (Peter Brook’s Pedagogy)
In a firm belief that each of our memory will help us to brainstorm for grouping, each of the classmates shared the most impressive moment from any theatre experience – plays, workshops, et cetera.
How did we do this? We closed our eyes first for 30 secs and thought of 1-2 moments that took our breath away.
“When a performance is over, what remains? … The event scorches on to the memory an outline, a taste, a trace, a smell – a picture. It is the play’s central image that remains, its silhouette, and if the elements are highly blended this silhouette will be its meaning, this shape will be the essence of what it has to say. When years later I think of a striking theatrical experience I find a kernel engraved on my memory: two tramps under a tree, an old woman dragging a cart, a sergeant dancing, three people on a sofa in hell – or occasionally a trace deeper than any imagery.” (Brook 1968)
