Two Minute Pantomime

Lesson 1:
Starter:

Moving around the space and freeze in various emotions. Use love, fear, disgust,
horror, happiness, boredom... Move around the space and then freeze as a
policeman, doctor, cleaner, fairy Godmother, prince/princess, wicked witch...

When you froze as the different characters, did you create a realistic or stylised
character?

Discuss stereotypes. What stereotypes do you expect to find in a pantomime?

Assign the class into 2 groups and give 1 minute to choose a well known pantomime
story.

Allow 5 minutes to pick the top 5 (can be less) moments in the story that have to be
told in order for the story to make sense.

Create 5 freeze frames of the top 5 moments and focus on the use of body
language, proxemics and facial expressions.

Draw a storyboard of your 5 scenes in your books

Homework:

Complete the storyboards and bring in any props or costumes you may need for
your performance next week. ONLY BRING WHAT YOU NEED FOR THOSE FIVE
SCENES!!!

Lesson 2:
Starter:

Play “touch something...”

Main:

In your groups, recreate the freeze frames from your storyboard and then come up
with a maximum of 10 lines of dialogue to move from one scene to the next.

The challenge is to make a 2-minute pantomime complete with “he’s behind you”
and “boo” moments, but it must be NO LONGER THAN 2 MINUTES!! After 2 minutes
the play stops.

This will teach economy of speech and movement.
