ASC Theatre Camps: Dab, Slash, Flick: Laban Movement with Patrick Earl

“Movement, to me, is integral as an actor is concerned,” stated Patrick Earl at the beginning of his Laban workshop.

Stole from Theatrefolk... Another way of looking at character analysis-- for the visual learner!

A great character development graphic organizer for the visual learner. Have students complete about self or historical person.

FREE DRAMA GAME  ~Magic Box~  Players sit or stand in a circle. One student starts by handing another player a pantomimed box. "I have a present for you!" The player next to him accepts "Thank you!" and "opens" it. The receiver announces what he has found inside. “My very own extra brain! I LOVE it! Thank you!" He then presents a gift to another player. ANYTHING can be in the box.   For more inventive drama games for kids and teens, register for a risk-free trial at www.dramanotebook.com

FREE DRAMA GAME  ~Award Ceremony~  This is a GREAT public speaking exercise!  One player presents a (fictional) award to the next player who must improvise an acceptance speech. The acceptor then becomes the presenter! Give ‘presenters’ the option of coming up with their own award, or drawing one from a hat. Awards may be funny or serious.

FREE DAILY DRAMA GAME  ~Bad Monkey~  Create a list of animals on a colored sheet of paper and a list of simple activities on a different colored sheet of paper. Cut apart, and place all in a hat. Have each student choose one of each color. They will end up with a type of animal doing a specific activity such as a 'butterfly' 'washing the dishes.'  Members of Drama Notebook have access to this game ready to print out and cut apart, and to a video that shows how the game is played!

FREE DAILY DRAMA GAME    ~Understudy~    A scene is started (use an improvisation starters list if you need ideas), played by two to four players. Mid-scene the lead player interrupts, and all characters onstage pick a replacement for themselves from the audience. The new players should take over the original characters, and stick to the story that was being developed.

FREE DAILY DRAMA GAME  ~Fortune Teller~  Two students onstage—one is the fortune teller and the other is the client.
