Developing a devised performance

In this lesson, students will develop their monologue for performance, adding in more advanced conventions and techniques. They will look at vocal and physical performance techniques and apply these to their performance, and if possible, ask someone to film them performing their monologue. They will watch their monologue back and evaluate their performance. This lesson includes some physical activity. We recommend checking with a trusted adult before starting or doing the lesson with the trusted adult nearby.
