I led the warm-up again today. I did a different warm-up this morning called Pass the Clap, you have to look in each others' eyes and clap at the same time, so it's more of a concentration game. And the Martin led a few warm-up games as well, the ones we did at the beginning of the week. Because he's from Manchester he says we have to call him Mar'in and not pronounce the t.
After the warm-up games we refreshed ourselves of the scenes we created yesterday. After break we sort of took the forest stuff we did at the beginning of the week and incorporated our individual scenes, which is all part of the performance on Friday.
Last session we recorded more sound effects for each group's piece. My group recorded the sounds of dragons and elephants because my group's piece is called Dragon Wars, and includes elephants fighting dragons.
Today you can tell it's the build-up to a performance because of how everyone has been working, the first two sessions this morning were really active.
I've got used to Mind the Gap's way of running projects so this has felt very different, but I have definitely enjoyed trying their way of working.
T-minus 24 hours to show time when the participants' friends and family will come to watch. Even some of the WYTS drivers are coming to watch as they really want to know what we've been up to.
