Independent Practice: The students will now have the opportunity to try a discovery monologue.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of how to use improv in a monologue by using improv techniques in a minute to minute and a half monologue.
Prior to this lesson students must have memorized their minute to minute and a half monologue for them to work in class. Guided Practice: Students will first do their monologue while running around the room.
Guided Practice Now have them to do their monologue as a character that they would not imagine saying their monologue.
If they imagine their character is meek, to do it boasty.
What did you feel when you were doing the activities?
How can doing your monologue in many different ways make it better?" the line might be changed to "I just got out of jail," and after another buzz, "I just had my legs waxed." And so on. If one character hits another, a buzz might cause him to hug the other instead.Tips: Do not merely reverse what was just said after a buzz.Remind them to go with their impulses and have fun! They usually require information such as setting, conflict, pantomimed objects the actors may have to use, actors' occupations within the scene, or any other tidbits which may help build the scene.Independent Practice: Then have the students perform part of their monologues with the move-first principle. They can feel free to explore movement and impulses, no matter what they may be.
