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

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

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. 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.

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, Adapted with 'Illyrian Elysium'  to include 20 'Goddesses'

Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, Adapted with 'Illyrian Elysium' to include 20 'Goddesses'

A note from the Author: I have adapted the comic master piece 'Twelfth Night' into a school production with an additional 20 goddess, 3 servants of Olivia, and 6 extra Feste's. My additional play 'Illyrian Elysium' tells the story of the 20 Goddesses above Illyria who cause havoc down below for the mortals, which lead to the story of Twelfth Night unfolding. Illyrian weaves effortless between Shakespeare's scenes and adds depth and explanation for younger audience members. Please note that the 'Goddess' parts may be exchanged for 'Gods' in a mixed school setting. Twelfth Night Brief Synopsis Viola has been shipwrecked in a violent storm off the coast of Illyria; in the process she has lost her twin brother, Sebastian. She disguises herself as a boy and assumes the name Cesario for protection. Thus disguised, Viola comes into the service of Orsino, the Duke of Illyria. Orsino is having little luck courting the Countess Olivia, who is in mourning for the deaths of her father and brother. Orsino sends Viola to Olivia’s court with love letters, and when she arrives, Olivia becomes intrigued by the impudent young "boy," and contrives to get "Cesario" to return by sending her butler, Malvolio, after her with one of Olivia's rings. Viola realizes to her dismay that Olivia has fallen for her Cesario rather than Duke Orsino — this is further complicated by the fact that Viola has started to fall herself for Orsino. Elsewhere, Sebastian (Viola's twin, presumed dead) comes ashore in Illyria thinking that Viola has drowned in the shipwreck. His devoted and loving friend, Antonio, rescued him from the surf, and continues to aid him—at some risk to himself, as Antonio fought against the Duke at one time. Meanwhile, in Olivia's court, Sir Toby Belch (her uncle) has hoodwinked a foppish Sir Andrew Aguecheek into supporting him (and giving him money) by convincing him that he could be a suitor to Olivia. There is also a running feud between Malvolio and Belch, and with the help of Maria (Olivia’s cook), and the band of Feste Fools, Belch plots to make a buffoon of the butler. Maria writes a love letter to Malvolio that will make him think Olivia has fallen for him…And thus begins the realm of discord descending upon Illyria…

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

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 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!

Greek Theatre SOW - Gesture, Unison Movement, Choral Voice, Comedy, Tragedy, Masks, Gods, Catharsis

Greek Theatre SOW - Gesture, Unison Movement, Choral Voice, Comedy, Tragedy, Masks, Gods, Catharsis

A note from the author: I use this scheme of work with my Year 8 class, as not only does it offer a historical perspective on theatre, but it also allows for complex exploration into characters, ensemble work 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 ensemble unison (both vocal and physical) and promotes positive working relationships in my students. Objective Overview of Greek Theatre § Students to explore Greek Theatre elements such as chorus, characters comedy & tragedy, masks, depictions of gods, exaggerated acting. § Students to develop skills in unison movement, choral voice, non-verbal communication, tragic/comic characters, mask work, script exploration, and gestures. § Students to gain an introductory knowledge of Greek Theatre playwrights, Theatre practitioners (Complicitie, Jacques Lecoq), mythological characters, classical history and performance conditions. § Students to explore The Trojan Women in depth, as well as examples from The Frogs and The Clouds. Overview of The Trojan Women The Trojan Women follows Queen Hecuba, her daughter Cassandra, her daughter-in-law Andromache and her grandson Astyanax, as they learn of their fates to the conquering Greek army. Talthybius, a herald of the Greeks, shows great compassion for the Trojans but must deliver terrible news (the death of Astyanax, the burning of Troy, the separation of Cassandra and Andromache from Hecuba). Menelaus considers slaughtering his ex-wife Helen (of Helen of Troy fame, the face that launched 1000 ships) however he is won over by her charm and decides to delay her killing. Is Helen responsible for the whole Trojan War? The gods Poseidon and Athene start the play discussing how to kill the Greek Army after they offended Athene at her temple. This leads to the messages and themes of the futile nature of war, fate, free will and feminism. The play occurs at the same time as Euripides' other play Hecuba. Included: In-depth Scheme of Work Lesson Resources (Images, Worksheets, Handouts) Scripts (a few chorus example scripts, self-written gesture scripts) Assessment Instructions Please note: You may want to purchase 'The Trojan Women' by Euripides, and The Frogs and The Clouds by Aristophanes - however I have included two extracts from the plays plus some example chorus sections.
