Activity 2.1

To use a dramatic presentation to evaluate the values and behaviour of people: soap opera or puppet show

STEP 1

  • In this unit you are going to compose a song, tell a story in animation format or present a puppet-show. Your educator will tell you what it should be about, and you may decide what you want to do. You already know all the rules of this art form and can handle it easily. Choose your groups right away and start working on the text.

STEP 2

  • We are going to look at the values and behaviour of people in certain general cases, such as soap operas and any other chosen stage form. You are going to do a dramatic presentation of this topic in the format of your choice.

STEP 3

  • The learners who choose the puppet-show must start building the puppet theatre immediately. Use a large, sturdy cardboard box. (Ask at your nearest furniture store whether they have one.) Make the stage curtain. Those of you who want to compose a song will have to get together immediately to combine the lyrics and the music of the song. Those who want to do an animation must also start working on the way in which the characters speak. In this case, voices are very important.

STEP 4

  • You have already started rehearsing, making costumes and puppets, and the puppet theatre has been finished or is nearly finished and painted. Remember that we also use colour to suggest the emotions of our characters! Therefore, dress your puppets in the colour of their mood! The singers must also ensure that the words are written in such a way that the mood of the characters will be clear immediately. The same rule applies to animation.

STEP 5

  • By now, everything should be about ready. Remember, this process takes place in the course of a few lessons, which will give you enough time to plan and prepare properly. Please be on time for rehearsals and do not let the other members of your group down. If you need props, find them. Try to work together as a GROUP as far as possible, and if you have appointed a producer, listen to him/her!

STEP 6

  • And now it’s time for the show! There will definitely be very interesting performances. Remember that these performances may also be COMICAL and need not be SERIOUS. You must decide how you are going to sum up and tackle the situation.
