6.a.m. My pigeon encounter is over. My mind is empty, distractions gone. Not shot at this time before, the light is dull. But I do not need to think. I do not need to care about the image its not the point of the morning.
New day, new experience.
I don’t need to think about following the stage direction at the start of this speech, ‘enter king Richard’ it seems somewhat straight forward. I do however want a simple unlock and direct entry. Dissertation length pieces will not cut it when you have to walk and talk at the same time.
Richard goes through significant emotional turbulence to reach his conclusion. How do you speak it, and hit the emotional range required from start to finish?
I think it is simple. He has already worked out his conclusions before he started. The speech is retrospective. His issue with the question is not with reaching a conclusion. He has already arrived at an answer, that is his problem.
Speak, get the rhythm, you arrive at a sense of time. You have to do that for yourself. Answers here cannot be taught. Such things are not enough.
Rehearsal and walk through are required. Richards situation makes such a processes raw and difficult.
It ends then starts all over again.
Acting is life. It is no more than to breath.
