Thanks to local video designer Johannes Bockwoldt – you can check out the difference that happens in a scene between rehearsal (in our rehearsal room), and performance (on the NextStage during the Fringe Festival).

It’s almost exactly the same, but as you can see – lights, costumes, and an audience drastically alter how you perceive and enjoy it.
One of the challenges for actors is to figure out how to take their rehearsal performance, and replicate it, even with a thousand distractions around them (lights, moving scenery, thousands of cough drops being opened at the same time).
