Most of us know how a dragon is supposed to look, so not too much variation from that norm is permitted. The thing is, I'm going to be taking this incendiary young thing on an emotional journey, which means a full range of expressions and gestures. To take Hamilton, the dragon with hiccups, on an adventure requires me to understand how he looks from the all sides. How does he move, run, jump, fall down, laugh, cry, express fear or delight? Character development is all about building a relationship with your performer - an essential process to enable me to assist him on his journey.
