The 5th and 6th grade Drama Elective meets once weekly for 45 minutes in the small Aula. The main focus is on building a group atmosphere by using the Ensemble Technique. The students work on overcoming their inhibitions through games and vocal activities, work on short skits in ever-changing groups and improvise as much as possible. The students also work on body and facial expression and develop short skits of their own. This past semester we worked on a short play based on the 50 year Anniversary of President Kennedy’s speech at Rathaus Schöneberg. The play was performed at a grade 3-6 Assembly and was turned into a film shown at the Open House.
