Many iterations of the physical process provide short-term solutions to the broader aesthetic problem of embodying the heightened character and circumstances, and students find this frustrating at first. The discipline generated by the Suzuki Method has prepared them to welcome that which is difficult and has developed in them a persistence that fuels their work and respect for the process. The Myth Project sets the groundwork to see themselves not only as actors but also as explorers and embodied researchers. While the physical metaphor often frustrates them in the beginning, they begin to see how one moment in an early iteration is linked to a more refined moment in a later iteration. Through the continuous presence of heightened physical engagement, they have the sense that they are activated, even if the text seems inactive.
