Whatever you do, whatever you call it, however you do it…
…a daily Drama diary, a weekly Theatre journal, a monthly Developing Practitioner’s blog, your Commonplace – you know you need to keep regular records of what you do, how you’ve done it, why you’ve done it, what you’ve learned, how the work’s linked to other practitioner’s work etc., blah, blah, blah…
You’ll come away with something beautiful – a record that might be really handy – even beyond your TPPP
You should often amuse yourself when you take a walk for recreation, in watching and taking note of the attitudes and actions of men as they talk and dispute, or laugh or come to blows with one another… noting these down with rapid strokes, in a little pocket-book which you ought always to carry with you. (Leonardo da Vinci)
Anne Bogart on likening keeping a diary to ‘Viewpointing’
Ever since I was a teenager, I have written in a journal. This daily action provides me with the space and time to practice forging sentences and paragraphs and to develop a point-of-view in relation to my daily experiences and encounters. I equate the Viewpoints with this activity. Together, within a Viewpoints improvisation, we collectively study the art of writing theatrical fiction upon the stage using the tools of time and space. And we practice on a daily basis. We base our writing upon what we are reading from the space, from one another, from the audience and from the situation from moment to moment.http://siti.groupsite.com/post/july-2012-useful-practice
