This combination of theatre games from DRAMA MENU was used when I had a two hour class with students aged 15+ . . . they are a little inexperienced and I wanted to get them up on their feet and performing whilst adding parameters that would anchor their acting work and teach them how to use the playing area effectively. This combination worked so well; SET POSITIONS and MOTIVATION MAPS were the perfect drama exercises for encouraging the students to use the space effectively while still allowing them to bring so much of their creativity to the table. SET POSITIONS is a simple concept but the students absolutely revelled in it and produced such creative work; I intend to go back to it and add more parameters, they absolutely loved the torn paper and upended chair so, I think it would be good to add more props, perhaps a phone, a diary, a gun?? I think adding such props would send their creative brains into overdrive and would produce even more dynamic work! So, once we’d played that exercise, the Motivation Maps was breeze – their creativity was fully awakened as was the concept of working within the confines of the blocking and once again, we had some stellar work and some truly awesome performances. I wasn’t intending to use a Dessert but as the author says, sometimes you need a little 10 minute time filler and Space Jump provided that . . . and more! I’ve played it several times since . . . such a great drama game that encourages acceptance and produces so much quick fire, creative fun! Go aheah and use this combination, you will not be disappointed!
