Students engaged in communicating story to the audience with movement only, no voices. We enjoyed quite a variety of scenes this morning!
If you missed the presentations today, you will need to complete an alternate, solo, assignment which is attached below.
We have been learning stage movement terms and practicing stage movement techniques. Below you will find the PPT with Stage Directions and our Group Movement Project.
Students will develop and rehearse the Group Movement Project during class Monday, January 25 and present Wednesday, January 27.
On Tuesday, we spent the entire period learning and practicing warm-up exercises. A good warm-up routine should start with relaxation and focusing, move through stretching the body and the face, warming up the vocal instrument and finishing with an energizing activity. We did it all, and then some! I needed a nap by the time we were through.
Thursday in class, students will work in groups to create their own 2-3 minute warm-up routine. They will select elements from our master lesson and add exercises of their own, if they wish; they will rehearse and present the routine as a group.
On Friday, we engaged in several improvisational activities and acting games; maybe we even discovered a few theatre lessons during the process. We discussed that the purpose of theatre is to communicate story to the audience. We learned that the word "drama" in the Ancient Greek means "to do or to act," so there is no drama without action. We learned that we must be aware of ourselves, our environment and the others around us in order to be active and engaged while performing.
Theatre Appreciation with Mrs. Sone meets during 1st period on A-Days. You will receive a hard-copy of the syllabus below. Please have your parent/guardian review and sign the final page and return to Sone by Monday, January 11.
