LB RIOT, La Boite’s annual program designed to support classroom learning and assessment, has moved online!
LB RIOT allows young artists and their teachers to engage with a new work, specifically designed to be a classroom resource.
Although students are beginning to return to school, it may be a while before artists are allowed to visit. This resource has been designed for online individual learning at home or as a digital Artist in Residence resource for your classroom.
In 2020, LB RIOT will focus on Steve Pirie's 3 O'Clock, Flagpole, a work written specifically for high-school students. This program will deep-dive into Magical Realism and Contemporary Performance Conventions, Text and Character Analysis, and Devising and Performing Skills.
LB RIOT is flexible for your classrooms’ needs – it can be used as a unit resource or extra-curricular text.
The online workshop includes the following content:
- Style and Form: Magical Realism and Contemporary Performance.
- Responding: Analysing themes (purpose), analysing character, identifying conventions and unpacking examples of Magical Realism and Contemporary Performance.
- Forming: Devising using conventions style and form, monologue creation, filling gaps and silences, devising from stimulus.
- Performing: Creating and presenting monologues and scene work.
