Original Solo Performance
Perfect for exam preparation! Transform ideas into a dramatic piece and a character. Clear structure is established to enable students to take their chosen character/s on a journey from beginning to resolution. Performance styles, dramatic elements and stagecraft will be addressed.
Selecting, Preparing and Performing Monologues
Assisting students with the process of selecting, creating and presenting a monologue. Concentrate on a monologue of the school’s choice placed in the context of the scene and the play from which it is drawn. Identify key lines of dialogue, the climax of the piece and the character’s motivations. Appropriate performance styles and choices are discussed and applied in order to effectively realise the character in performance.
Actors often get bound to scripts and lost in text interpretation and they forget to create. Improvisation frees the actor to explore characters, narrative and connections. Unlock your students’ spontaneity, creativity, character generation, scene building, narrative structure and enhance their preparations for their tasks and examinations.
Physical theatre describes a mode of performance that pursues storytelling or drama through primary and secondary physical and mental means. Based around discovery, students work within their own boundaries and limitations, go beyond their own expectations, spending time stretching, talking, moving, manipulating objects and each other.
