This week’s oracle was very enjoyable; we looked in to three different scenes from the beginning of our play ‘The Readathon Don’. We played games, such as, The Psychiatrist and WAH.
The we were split in to three groups and were each given a title and a scenario to act out. One group had ‘Give it a go’, another, ‘Making up the story’, and the last had ‘Are You Sure?’. The ‘Give it a go’ group were asked to use as many ways as possible to get the ‘reluctant reader’ (who doesn’t want to read for some reason yet to be determined) to read a book - They sing, they dance, they hypnotize her, they even “bring in the master” but still to no avail. This was a fun piece to work on! ‘Making up the Story’ was equally as exciting but in a different way. In this piece they made a lot of use of costume, multi-roles and narration to tell the beginning of ‘The Readerthon Don’, It gave it a very magical feel. The final group, ‘Are You sure?’ , made a piece that involved many different types of story, we saw the characters fall in to ‘Harry Potter World’ and the ‘Readerthon Don’ becoming one of the main character which was pretty awesome!
All in all it was a great session, looking forward to next week!!
