The Twelve Days of SAVI

To help with the holiday spirit, here’s a DIY Christmas Carol for Singing Actors

On the first day of SAVI, my teacher gave to me
A lesson in specificity.

On the second day of SAVI, my teacher gave to me
Two moving eyes
And a lesson in specificity.

(You know how this goes, right? So I won’t write out every verse in full.)

Three shish kebabs
Four action verbs
Five GOLDEN DINGS
Six truthful moments
Seven varied choices
Eight different levels
Nine chunky choices
Ten kinds of gestures
Eleven funny faces

On the twelfth day of SAVI, my teacher said to me
Let’s go gesture shopping!
Eleven funny faces
Ten kinds of gestures
Nine chunky choices
Eight different levels
Seven varied choices
Six truthful moments
Five GOLDEN DINGS (massive harmony here)
Four action verbs
Three shish kebabs
Two moving eyes
And a lesson in specificity!

Have a great holiday, everyone!
