Life is never flat

A quote I picked out of a seriously ads slogan. Most of us might agree that what we experience indeed affects the way we perceive the world ironically meaning that there’s always burden getting us tripped over, but how successful we’re capable of dealing with it is the main point.

This might have been a reason behind the play my squad and I played last December. The story, which was a part of a final grade for our Basic Drama Analysis, reveals a storyline about a lady named Anne losing her beloved son presumed dead due to illness could not bear her life. She was ‘forced’ to live in a shadow of his son though she ‘actually’ knew he was gone away.

Interestingly, the story which was originally written by Mrs. Nadine tells the background of Anne’s family who were bluffing about the existence of her son named Dookie. It once seemed to me that there was going on with the family as they kept acting as if Dookie were still there. They all lived in a chance of LIES.

Anne was then to have some pills given by her husband, Todd played by me (Haa!!), whom frankly couldn’t resist the act his family played. He actually didn’t want to mess up with Anne’s family meaning that he expected Anne to believe in fate — a fate that Dookie would never come back and he rested in peace.

At last, Anne was partly aware of the fact that his son perished and it was an illusion about what she had been acting for since he’d never come back. In this very last scene, the cast for Anne, Levinda, was directed to scream out loud as realising the heart-itching truth she might find it difficult to believe.

The play came from a long way before it was decided that ‘A Thousand Horses’ would be performed as our final project. One thing I can still remember from this backbreaking drama is that the casts were to do some physical exercises before every rehearsal they were about to have. Then vocal exercise led by Dini the Smurff (a nickname reinvented by a lecturer) took nearly thirty minutes which got the casts to perfectly have a louder timbre and I was screwed for that! lol

It would never happen with none but the make-up coordinators successfully making the casts look cute as PHUCK! And of course, our director keeping our performance improved is DIAN NOVITA. When the play was about to begin, a rather large group of people crawled into the hall which was already set and decorated by my good friend, NIKEN and her team.
