(sorry for the alliteration...I couldn't help myself)
So, I am a senior applying to 5 audition schools and (obviously) practicing/working on my monologues. (I feel/know/think I am way behind schedule but that is NOT the point of this post so unless you disagree with me and want to comfort me, please don't comment on it :))
My question is: should I stick to using my strongest natural quality (my voice) and not try to force stuff I have difficulty with (physicality)? Like, is it okay to have none of my pieces be too physical because so far that's not something I'm good at as an actor, or does that show that I'm not trying/not good at it and instead I should work really hard on the physical stuff and risk it being crappy and/or forced-looking?
I don't want bad physicality to be my downfall at these auditions, but at the same time I don't want to do what I think is really good work, just consistently not very physical, and lose out because of that second part.
