Quarantine Hobbit Character Homework

Author By Leah

We are going to continue to work on the Hobbit! Here is your assignment. (besides learning your lines using your dialects).

I would like each individual in each group (Goblins, Dwarves, Men, Trolls, Gollum) to come up with a physical posture.

You can build this physicality using the stock character building process below:

*What position are feet in. (feet out, in, on toes etc.)

*What is happening with the knees (does this character lead with knees, are the knees bowed or     knocked)

*Hips:  Forward or back (butt more prominent?)

*Back:  Arched? Slouched? Straight?

*Chest:  forward, concave?

*Shoulders:  Up, down, forward, back, crooked?

*Neck:  Stiff, pulling head forward or back?

*Face:  lips scrunched, crooked, pursed or tight lips (when not talking of course but do you talk and can you talk with one of these elements.

Once you have built this character take a picture of yourself and send it to me and then I will send it to Leah to post on the website.  Meredith and I will look at them and try to pick the dominant posture for each group (remembering that each goblin, dwarves, etc.  should be somewhat similar as they share the same DNA). Hoping this will be fun for all of us.  Remember be creative and don’t hold back!

 Meredith is going to record the core fight moves we went over the last rehearsal so you all can continue to go over those.  Choreographing the fights will go much faster if you are solid on the moves.
