Resources designed to help you lead drama or theatre students through a simple performance project based on acting exercises designed by Viola Spolin
, the internationally recognized originator of theatre games. The project also encourages students to explore being a sound designer
, as students must select a piece of music or sound to use in their performances.
I use this as the performance component
of my Viola Spolin Acting Training Unit in my high school Theatre Arts 2 classes. It is their second experience with pantomime and their second experience with selecting music. This would also be an excellent project for a film class
, or for any teacher looking for a performance project that does not involve speaking out loud.
