About Action & Reaction.

Activity given during class by faculty : Two people Improvisation - Excercise given on action & reaction or chain of actions & reactions. Under this students told to perform a drama where one friend talks with other old friend for patching up differences came out of misunderstanding for any future purpose (like any future event or workshop which they would be doing together). Here in this, one friend tells how misunderstanding happened and he convinced his upset friend by saying sorry & by getting rid of misunderstanding


Feedback on two people Improvisation is taken by participants also faculty himself gave his thorough feedback on performance where he make students understand what should be done & what should not be done.


Usefulness : Since two people Improvisation making students aware about conditions where acting needs on the spot creativities & ideas to make a drama, it was really helpful in developing or sensitizing students for real life acting or performing arts knowledge. Also everyone's feedback including faculty's too was useful for understanding what should be keep in mind for two people Improvisation.
