A totally silent play in a festival. No dialogue. A new experiment/attempt for me.

Heard it went very well.

Made me happy. Thinking of doing more. As an actor, I take how the body moves on a stage very seriously.

I always tell actors who have hired me to coach them, "It is not how you feel as an actor. No one gives a rat's ass about how you feel. It is all about how you can use your instrument "in toto" to make the audience feel."

best,

IMR

P.S. Got the idea from an exercise Paddy posted about 2 years ago. Thanks, Paddy.

Kris,

Yes, it does. But I do not seek publicity except through a site's or other professional sources.

Just wanted to share my good news.

Heard from the director it was one of the hits of the evening.

best,

IMR

I've not seen it myself, but you might want to check out a new film with Robert Redford called "All is Lost", which is about a man stranded at sea. I hear it's good, and contains almost no language - "dramatic minimalism" is the word people are using.

Redford's "Jeremiah Johnson" is also pretty wordless from what I remember.

Just saw "All Is Lost" and "Gravity" back to back.

Similar stories, one in Space one on water.

I'd recommend them.

Gravity was dramatic. all is Lost is more leaning toward melodrama, but really well done, until the ending.

My only problem with "All is Lost" is the ending.

Redford was great.

Bullock was great.

best,

IMR
