Theatre Games

This is a crash course in improvisation and team competition games that also arms upper primary and lower secondary students with problem solving and social skills crucial to their development. Shy students will feel safe to step up into the spotlight, and bolder students love the competition challenges and become team leaders. Many of the games are narrative, and so help build storytelling skills and vocabularies.

Session 1 – Ice Breakers / Focus / Observation / Trust & Teamwork
Students play ice-breaker games aimed at building group trust. They then learn the importance of focus and observation, accepting and building on offers, and the general rules of Improvisation.

Session 2 – Learning the Games
Students learn four Theatre Games (2 Narrative, 2 Competition), and how to play to the boundaries of time and the rules. The class group is arranged into teams, making sure there is a fair distribution of skill types and strengths in each.

Session 3 – Rehearsal & Performance
The last session is all about rehearsing the games learnt for performance. The presenter will allot each small group quality time to help them prepare. Some teachers have another class as audience.
