Project Description

Keep the Object in space

Using slips of paper, as Viola suggests in the book, is to keep students from pre-planning (playwriting)

Audience Players will see the difference

In the evaluation you ask players was the object in the space or in your head? Audience, do you agree?

Throughout Orientation, pleasure and enthusiasm must set the tone. If players are apprehensive and anxious, constantly looking to see if they are doing “right,” in your urgency you may be a pedant rather than a leader or guide of the group. You may be giving too many problems in one session, not allowing players to have the experience of flow as they would from a game.
