Today we had the second rehearsal for the play. It was an important day for all the members to share the same ideas in terms of the script read-through, staging, and organization. But, in the end, we could only go through a half of it. Of course, it's natural that this takes time, but I couldn't help noticing the lack of tension in the production staff. Naturally, I don't expect them to have the same level of tension [as I do regarding the play], but the fact that we could only finish half of what we wanted to do today means that it will take two months to finish what I want to finish in a month. There are too many of them who don't understand this. Sadly, there still aren't many who realize that a serious tension is needed. An important job of the production staff is to make the actors realize this need for tension, but the production staff themselves not realizing this is simply out of the question. In any case, we will build the play up to 100% by the first day, and we will make it 400% by the last stage. This is GACKTism, and this attitude is nothing unusual for an entertainer, an expressionist, and a professional to have for the audience who will come to see us. A play is different from a live stage in that there are many actors who move the play forward together. This, of course, leads to both positive and negative issues. The greater the number of people involved, the harder it becomes to reform their level of awareness. But I don't think we can't do it. To deliver the best stage, to create a stage that makes all of the people involved to feel truly happy to have taken part in it, to make a stage that'll make the audience say I want to see it again with tears in their eyes after the final stage. I am once again realizing how difficult it is to create something. That's why it's interesting. I hope we can keep improving this play until the very end. Phew..., it was a tiring day again... But there's still the task of arranging audio for the play. I guess I'll finish that before this day's over. Today's second rehearsal for the play = 20 points. I still have much to learn, too. Keep going, me!!!
Now, this reminds me of this tweet from @tom_ichimura, posted just yesterday:
This could be totally unrelated to the frustration G seems to have for the production staff, sure, but when I saw this tweet yesterday, it got me a bit worried... *sigh*
