Interview with Sofie Ward

Monika: Today’s interview will be with Sofie Ward, a Swedish transgender musician, blogger, activist and community leader. Hello Sofie!
Sofie: Activist and community leader seems a bit excessive. I just try to do my part in life. ;)
Monika: What are you doing these days?
Sofie: Right now I’m studying "Art with specialization in Cultural Leadership" at the Linnaeus University in Växjö here in Sweden.
Monika: You are a member of the band named "Zip of Fire". How did you start playing together?
Sofie: Well, I knew the drummer since before, and had worked with the guitarist. When their old bass player decided to invest in another band, I was the obvious replacement.

Interview with Aleshia Brevard: Part 3

Monika: Aleshia, in our previous conversation you stated that your true acting career took place in theater. How would you compare these two artistic worlds?
Aleshia: Ah, Monika, that is a subject on which I could easily drone on for hours, one on which someone could write a book – and indeed many have. Accomplished actors still argue over whether performance styles must differ markedly between stage and film. I tend to agree with those artists who argue successful acting for film is more self-contained.
Film is the more intimate medium. Obviously on stage the play’s ideas are projected into a three-dimensional space peopled with actors whose goal is to reach and move the theater audience. This requires project of both voice and manner. Even with a long run of the play, the actors must speak their lines as though they had just thought of them, the “illusion of the first time.” I would further contribute that theater appeals to feelings first and to intellect second.
