Drama, Creative Arts & Media - Our digital world
Ever wondered what the future might hold? In this drama workshop, there are many activities for young people, such as getting involved in performance, creative writing, multimedia and craft, in order to explore the technological advances in the world around us.
This hands-on drama workshop is made up of a series of stages, which are then combined to create a final performance. The first stage involves taking a look at technology, drawing the group's attention to the fact that many of these everyday items never used to be around.
Then split into smaller groups, after being given a piece of existing technology, young people are encouraged to think of ways this could be improved – the wackier the better– before creating an advertisement for this.
The performance element of the creative arts and media activities for young people involves solo movement work, where the participants represent their piece of technology with their body's. They will then be guided through the process of creating various movements that this item might make, consequently endowing it with a persona.
Encouraged to think about the world around them, taking into account as many senses as possible, while also thinking about the positives and the negatives. One of the activities for young people involves sharing ideas by drawing and writing on a large piece of paper, creating a giant piece of art that represents the group's perception of their world, before then performing their idea.
Alongside this they will be asked to think about what they love about their world and what may make it better both for themselves and people in the future (focussing on sustainability, recycling, environmental issues etc). These ideas will then be used to create fabric shapes that will be used in an animated version of a possible future world.
All of these elements can then be combined to create a final performance.
