*****If your Assignments are not up yet, check back later this week!****
First, a warm up! Teach your family members to play Wax Museum with you as the curator. Make sure that everyone moves and changes positions when your back is turned!
Once you are warmed up, please choose a storybook from your personal collection. Read it with a parent, then using the improv skills you have learned at Clark, create a mini-performance in your living room and tell the story. Your family members can be in the story with you and play all the characters. If you have costume pieces and want to use them, go for it! Feel free to make a video of your family’s performance and share it with us via google drive or email.
Teen Improv Assignment
Teach Your Family to Play Improv: Write a Story
This week I would like you to teach your family how to play the improv game Write a Story. You will be the writer and you will ask your family to be your actors. Since we normally would get suggestions from the audience for a title, I will be giving you your first title:
The Princess Who Would Not Laugh
If you enjoy the activity, feel free to play additional rounds and ask your family for title suggestions. Remember that the most basic improv rule is to say yes, so encourage your family to agree and go along with the story you create. If you want to go the extra mile, please record your family’s play and share it in video via google drive or email.
Since we were unable to finish our group project work in class, I would love to see what you were able to create. Using any of the video chat formats available (I recommend Google Hangouts or Zoom – Zoom particularly if you want to record it), touch base with the available members of your group and create a small video presenting what your group was able to finish. If you feel this isn’t feasible, just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. Hope you all are enjoying the break as much as you can!
