LOVE. It’s probably the easiest theme you could get. The word LOVE is probably in every second song you know. Your challenge is not to find an appropriate SONG but instead to find a way to bring the theme to life. You don’t have much time so get moving!
Solo choices are easy. The Group performance requires communicating with your group and coming up with a plan and rehearsing. Remember you are being scored based on your originality, creativity, presentation and performance.
It should be fun too. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
A creative plague on both your houses!
Four weeks. Four assignments.
Each week, you need to prepare one SOLO performance and one GROUP performance based on that week’s theme.The themes are abstract and vague so they are easy to come up with a performance to match them. Get creative!
- WEEK ONE: Love
- WEEK TWO: Hate
- WEEK THREE: Sex
- WEEK FOUR: Magic
You’ll be judged based on creativity (10%), originality (10%), presentation (30%) and performance (50%). (See below for an explanation of these terms)
Remember, you are working as a team so SHARE ideas and PLAN among yourselves! That’s how you’ll succeed. Points will be awarded to your house as totals – we won’t reveal the individual scores.
When you have chosen your song, YOU MUST CLAIM IT by telling me. I will not reveal your choice to the other house but I will tell them a song is unavailable if they try to claim it. (If they do try to claim it, this obviously says something about the originality of your choice!)
Finally, you are not trying to surprise me, so feel free to ask for advice, help or stuff!
relate to how unique and entertaining your IDEAS are.
Presentation refers to how you use make-up, costume, props and staging to DELIVER your ideas.
Performance refers to what actually happens ON STAGE. Were your ideas a success? Were they entertaining? How did the audience react?
