A few weeks ago, we went to see a theatre play in English in Palaiseau. It was written by Dennis Foon and deals with youngsters' issues: love, schoolwork, violence... I enjoyed it and thought theatre was indeed the best way to send messages raising those problems.
Last Thursday, the director, Andrew Wilson, and Luc, an actor of the play, came to see us and we did a workshop together. I really enjoyed it, although we sometimes had to face our shyness, we finally managed to play a character of the play we had chosen. Each of us played a short part of the play and we laughed a lot.
At the end, we learnt how to slap each other as actors do. This was my favourite part of the workshop, because I was allowed to slap Manon, at last, something I had been waiting for since almost the beginning of the year! (and M. Bouquerel always prevented me from doing it, which was a real pain!)
I will keep some great souvenirs of this workshop!
