Over the course of this lesson you will:
Develop a character - Who?
Decide where this character lives - Where?
Decide what they do - What?
The lesson culminates in the creation of a short improvised scene to perform.
This class gives you a little taste of what we explore in greater depth in the Intro to Impro and Super Scriptwriting classes.
In all my classes I aim to develop imagination and confidence as well as narrative and storytelling skills.
Introduction of the lesson
1 - Using various stimulus such as images of different hats and occupations as well as creative thinking and questioning activities, participants will create a character. We will explore how these characters look and sound and develop some images and dialogue for these characters.
2 - We will explore the ‘where’ of these characters - where do they live and how does this influence their actions?
3 - What do these characters do? What is the main point of action of the story? How is it resolved?
4 - The class culminates in an in-class performance of the creative storytelling product you have developed, followed by a self-reflection analysis tool ?⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️?
