Online Object Theatre
Initiation Workshop

A workshop leader will initiate your students to Object Theatre through a series of practical exercises, adapted for your age group. This workshop has been adapted to be delivered online.

Steps
  • The workshop leader introduces Object Theatre with a short presentation and explains the basic principles of this artistic form.
  • Students start by physically and vocally warming up. They introduce themselves and are led through a few theatre exercises on emotions, rhythm, focus…
  • Grades 1, 2 and 3: Students choose and manipulate objects based on various instructions – make them appear, create an emotion, follow a musical rhythm. At the end of the workshop, they transform a napkin using the techniques learnt and by letting their imagination speak for itself.
  • Grade 4 onwards: Through exercises that highlight the poetic and expressive power of objects, they create silent sequences by following rhythm and acting instructions given by the workshop leader. These are done with or without music.
Pedagogical elements
  • Practice French oral communication and expression skills, within the context of an artistic activity, in front of peers.
  • Gain confidence through the use of the students’ imagination.
  • Develop a personal aesthetic and a critical vision.
  • Work with scale.
  • Discover a new artistic language, that of Object Theatre.
  • Stimulate creativity by looking at quotidian objects with a new artistic mindset.
