Option one: Create Myths and Legends
A great option for one class per day. Working with our creative director your class create a 15 minute performance of a myth or legend which is shown to an invited audience at the end of the day.
We use a mixture of scripted work and devising to create a performance unique to your class. Each pupil will have a speaking part as a character, narrator or chorus member and all participants will be actively involved using choral speech, sound effects, songs, movement and mime.
Can be used as an exciting introduction to your myth or legend, to bring the subject to life or as a fun filled conclusion to learning your topic. It’s a fun and exciting day with a productive sharing outcome.
