Fairy Tale Tableaus
Over the six weeks students pick simple stories, fairy tales or nursery rhymes that they act out in six tableaus or “frozen” pictures. Costumes, props, and other family members at home can be utilized to help tell the story. Pictures are submitted to the instructor who will communicate with the students each week along with video chats with other classmates. The picture stories may be shared via Facebook with the family’s permission.
Shelter at Home Video Diary
Each week students submit a short video about their experiences and feelings being sequestered at home, not going to school, and with little face to face contact with friends. After each submission the instructor will give the student feedback, suggest ways to improve, and collaborate as needed. There may also be group chats after students have seen each other’s work. At the end of the session, a video documentary with at least one video from each student will be put together and posted with permission from families.
Students will hone their improv skills by practicing pantomime, creating characters, and imagining a variety of different scenarios. They will submit videos of their best work for review and to share with others. Inspired by Mel Paradis’ “Individual Improv Activities” of Beat by Beat Press.
