The stage manager’s acting advice

(Or, what I want to tell some of my actors.)

1. Learn your lines.

2. Read your line notes.

3. The show being open does not mean you can stop reviewing your lines, particularly if your grasp on them was somewhat tenuous to begin with.

4. If you have two similar monologues in a scene, and you accidentally do the second one first, only to find yourself with no other choice but to do it a second time, DON’T RUSH THROUGH IT. THAT TELLS THE AUDIENCE YOU KNOW THAT YOU FUCKED UP. FUCKING OWN IT. SAY IT WITH EMPHASIS. THESE THOUGHTS YOU HAVE TO COMMUNICATE ARE SO IMPORTANT YOU’RE SAYING THEM TWICE. RUSHING TAKES YOU OUT OF THE SCENE AND INTO AN “OH GOD I FUCKED UP” PLACE, AND IT TAKES THE AUDIENCE RIGHT THERE WITH YOU. DON’T DO IT. STAY COOL.

5. And then look over your lines when you get home.

#can we just stop and appreciate Harry’s face in this scene? #I mean, he’s literally waiting for someone to say something about Hermione’s blood status #she’s the only Muggleborn in the slug club full of purebloods and well known people #and Harry’s there just like “say something I dare you” #and if you look at her face, you can see the actual hesitation and somewhat fear of what will happen next after telling of her parents occupation #Harry truly is acting like Hermione’s big brother, which I absolutely love #i just adore this scene

I love that Neville looks genuinely interested in what hermione’s talking about.

Harry: I wish a motherfucka would talk shit right now
Say something, make my day
Das right

Nevile looks like he’s just made a private mental note in flaming red ink: WHATEVER THE HELL A DENTIST IS, DON’T MESS WITH ONE. 

            

Including tags because oh my fucking god.

Li Xiaofeng: porcelain clothes

Some Mediterranean countries, such as Greece, have the millennial tradition of breaking the crockery to get rid of material goods in order to receive the New Year. The Chinese designer Li Xiaofeng was inspired by this tradition and found a way of recycling glass and porcelain remains in her new line of artistic clothing.
