VCE Drama Unlocked: Impro and Non Naturalism (Unit 3 Drama Ensemble)- Impro Melbourne
When faced with the prospect of creating performance, many students become ‘blocked’, trying to work out every detail before even getting onto the floor. Unlocking creativity, being playful, understanding how a simple exploration of one idea can lead to further discovery, how a sound or movement can have dramatic significance and how constructive criticism and peer observation can be helpful is the focus of this workshop for senior students.
Improvisation is a key tool in performance creation and used as a rehearsal process globally by theatre practitioners and directors. This 90 minute workshop uses a stimulus and, through practical exercises, takes the students through a process of how to use brainstorming, improvisation, editing and refining towards creating performance.
The workshop builds an understanding of the dramatic conventions and theatrical elements that form part of the Ensemble and Solo tasks of VCE Unit 3 and 4 Drama and will give your students a process to follow to develop their best possible work.
Impro Melbourne's teachers are passionate, highly experienced professional actors who love inspiring creativity in students.
