Here is the Mistaken identity tale filmed from a lateral point of view by Spark London when I performed.
in the iframe so - even an ipad could see it.
AND somehow it is different when one listen to it,
I think we could learn from each kind when we relisten or relook
- and not only the evident English mistakes I made during the telling -
My body language, facial expression and even voice variety got better
but I have still far to go! And I do not rush out (most of the time) after a performance.
I am most pleased that this serious message got well across and so much laugher too: it did decide me to learn about "how to make laugh with intention" not only by chance. At 2'7 the audience begun to laugh when I stripped, took out my tee-shirt, and they never stopped.
Sound track of the story I told at Canal Café Theatre
More audience, lots of energy, easier and not more difficult to perform,
to tell my true tale of when I was 10 years old and the war caught up with me.
There were almost 500 in the huge town hall in Manchester that day.
I had some difficulty to find a "good ending", a satisfying ending to a sad tale.
Of course, "I am here to tell the tale" was already great, but I found a more touching end.
One can tell the same tale so many ways! There are all "true" but how you tell the story counts.
