Conduct physical warm up exercises (e.g. stretches, jumping jacks, etc.). Conduct a couple of vocal warm ups (e.g. tongue twisters, scales, etc.).
Step 1: · Give students 5 minutes to review their scenes, collect props, costumes, etc.
Step 2: · Collect homework assignment · Have each group perform their contentless scenes · At the conclusion of each scene ask viewers for observations of what exercise they saw being executed · Have performers expand the discussion by informing audiences of other choices that were not as obvious (NOTE: subtly is good! It’s part of the exercises)
· Inform students that this concludes the unit of Uta Hagen’s Object Exercises
· Ask for feedback on what their process was like (Possible questions: What exercise was helpful? What exercise was hard? What exercise produced greatest improvement? What exercise challenged you most?)
