We’ve been in rehearsals in different configurations lately, due to previous commitments; sometimes three of us, sometimes four, sometimes all. Though usually this situation is frustrating it’s actually created interesting dynamics in the group. We work and relate together in mixed groupings, developing different relationships among us and in my opinion creating more varied and closer bonds as a whole. Like a real family.
We’re also working on a group painting, taking turns to add to the final canvas. Reactions along the way are telling! Amazing how much you can glean about personalities: personal preferences and sensitivities, from this kind of collaborative process.
