Session 2

ABOUT THE EVENT

This session was all about theatre exercises and understanding an assigned character. The session began with a game where the kids 'mirrored' their partners movement. We started with easy simple movements and then increased the difficulty by using the entire space. Next up was some screen time. Our resource person Joel DSouza, screened videos which displayed the process actors follow to understand and behave like a character. After a short break, it was time to use this new found knowledge in a practical exercise. The younger kids were given situations that they would have to act out by using prompts and tips that would help them bring out their character better. Meanwhile, the older ones took part in a script reading and this brought the session to a close.
