Contentless Scenes ('Open'/ 'Ambiguous' Scripts) Drama, Theatre Resources, GCSE, A Level, KS3

Contentless Scenes ('Open'/ 'Ambiguous' Scripts) Drama, Theatre Resources, GCSE, A Level, KS3

(1)
A note from the author: Included here are a selection of Contentless Scenes for use in lessons. Contentless Scenes (sometimes known as ‘Open’ or ‘Ambiguous’ scenes) are scenes that have very little detail on character or narrative plot leaving it open for the actors or directors to use their creativity and imagination to add detail to the scene with endless possibilities. I use these to explore: Character Creation Character Motivation Character Relationships Character Interactions Narrative Structures Subtext Themes & Issues Naturalistic Acting / Stanislavski They are so useful and I use them with each year for different reasons. I have written 35 scenes here that are all different and useful for a variety of reasons. I tend to photocopy them on different coloured pages and split them between different years so that as we use the scenes for different reasons as the students move up through the school they always have fresh stimuli. Included: 20 Duologue Contentless Scenes (ranging from half a page to a full page) 10 Quick-fire Contentless Scenes (suitable for 2 or three actors each) Four are very short (2/3 lines), 6 are longer (4/6 lines) 5 Contentless Scenes for Three Actors (full pages) It works out as 20p per scene!

The Arrival & Migration Drama KS3 SOW - Puppetry, Unison Movement, Stanislavski
TalthybiusTalthybius

The Arrival & Migration Drama KS3 SOW - Puppetry, Unison Movement, Stanislavski

(5)
A note from the author: I use this scheme of work with my Year 7 class, as not only does it offer exciting and creative opportunities, but it also allows for complex exploration into issues around migration and strong emotions. The students seem to want to get fully involved in all aspects and I have developed this scheme over four years of teaching it. It involves a rich variety of activities, and supports the development of empathetic and sympathetic social qualities in my students. 1/10/20 - This resource has been updated with key extracts of the script for you to use. Objective Overview of The Arrival § Students to create a devised performance on The Arrival, based on the stimuli provided (theme of migration, text extracts, pictures) and explorative rehearsal techniques. § Students to develop skills in unison movement, puppetry, non-verbal communication, still images, thought tracking and transitions. § Students to gain an introductory knowledge of Stanislavski Techniques. Overview of The Arrival ‘The Arrival is a migrant story told as a series of wordless images that might seem to come from a long forgotten time. A man leaves his wife and child in an impoverished town, seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. He eventually finds himself in a bewildering city of foreign customs, peculiar animals, curious floating objects and indecipherable languages. With nothing more than a suitcase and a handful of currency, the immigrant must find a place to live, food to eat and some kind of gainful employment. He is helped along the way by sympathetic strangers, each carrying their own unspoken history: stories of struggle and survival in a world of incomprehensible violence, upheaval and hope.’ Included: In-depth Scheme of Work Lesson Resources (Images, Worksheets on Migration Reasons, Dove Origami Puppet Sheet) Assessment Instructions & Abridged Assessment Instructions (for those without access to the play version) Please note: You may want to purchase ‘The Arrival’ by Shaun Tan - picture book to accompany this SOW, however I have included all necessary image resources. You may also want to get a copy of ‘The Arrival’, a play by Kristine Landon-Smith & Sita Brahmachari, based on the picture book, to accompany the assessments for this unit. However you can complete the assessment with the ‘abridged’ format without having a copy of the script. Please do comment on my resources so that I can continue to update and expand them.
