Sculptor & Clay
Mould and create a statue out of the clay of another person
Start in a Drama circle.
Put students into pairs and get them to label themselves A and B.
Working in pairs, one student becomes a sculptor and the other become clay. The sculptor must mould the clay into a statue.
They can manipulate the arms, legs, head, body and facial expression to create a statue based on titles, objects or themes the teacher has stipulated.
The students then switch roles.
This can be developed into an exercise that explores basic directing. The students have a group of students as clay and they have to communicate something to the audience in the form of a tableaux.
