    **Video starts with them dragging off the body of the previous actor who wasn’t quite ready for this level of training.**

    This video wasn’t my favourite. She didn’t take it seriously, didn’t put in a lot of effort and made a lot of exaggerated noises at the performance (though I’m not an expert on theatre, I’m sorry if that is how it’s done). I took fencing classes for a while and didn’t do as badly as she did, even though I’m not super sporty.

      I would say this is her way of concentrating. Some people start joking around and don‘t loose their humor (especially when knowing that they only have a few hours and it WONT be perfect). Notice how attentive she listens

      In theatre, everything down to the costumes to the actions have to be extremely exaggerated so everyone in the audience — no matter the distance, have a clear idea on what’s going on with the performance.
