Les Bons parleurs: the art of effective communication- “Around the gaze”
This interdisciplinary project got students in “2nde” involved in the world of acting, exploring self-expression, learning how to perform on a stage using drama techniques with the purpose of gaining confidence while speaking in front of an audience.
Students acted out different dramatic situations in which they had to use empathy, embrace their emotions and express these feelings in a sketch.
Facial expression being paramount, having to use masks changed the focus to the eyes, our performers realised how much their eyes are a mirror into the soul and feelings. They have learned to “smize” (smile with their eyes).
They are now in the “public eye”, take a look at their work!
