Drama Class gets Creative

The Drama Class gets Creative! Inspired by the American podcast 'Everything is Alive' whereby each episode includes an interview with an inanimate object, while studying virtually at home, students went on a treasure hunt and found inanimate objects for their own 'podcast'. 
The purpose was to think about character objectives and perspectives in a fresh way and to learn how to 'share' a scene in a completely improvised environment.

Listen as students bring inanimate objects to life through interviews, making us reflect on those everyday things we use in our lives, often in a humorous way.
