This is a weird request that needs some explanation. As some of you know, I perform at atypical venues. I've performed at renaissance faires, Wizard conventions, Steampunk events... things like that. And I've been performing under the name Kate the Chanticlaire. I want to elevate my game, and Chanticlaire has been nothing but a name for the past few years. I'm performing as me. It's not like I can't do character development. I've done environmental theater. I've done improv. I've just been lazy, and being lazy isn't getting me the gigs I want. So it's time to make Chanticlaire a more real person. But I'm out of practice with character development. It's been 11 years since I've done it with any seriousness. And now I don't have a full cast to bounce ideas off of. So maybe some of you could be my cast. One of my favorite exercises was called "Hot Seat." That's when one actor sits on stage as their character and all the other actors (as their characters, but you're already a bunch of characters) asks them questions. Anything you want to know. I'll hand this thread over to Chanticlaire and she'll have to answer your questions without too much thought. She won't try to be clever or anything. She'll just answer as honestly as she can. I usually come on a couple of times a day, but I'll let her answer first before I check out the rest of the forum. So go ahead. Ask away!
