In the first unit of 7th grade drama we have been looking at miming and the different key points in miming. In class we have played and practiced a few miming games for example one of them was the mirror game where one person is the mirror and the other person is a actor, dancer or sports player and we needed to mime to describe your person. After a few more classes with a partner we made this mime named the door mime, we create a simple story where we will open the door and close the door.
My partner was Aruna, she and I thought of this story about us being room mates, we couldn’t open the door and we opened the door with a axe. But after we got in we got locked in again.
I think that my mime for opening the door was not so bad but not perfect, when I opened the door I think I kind of curved the door.
In other performances I could use these miming skills that we learned so far for acting out stuff for example opening and closing stuff, and facial expressions and body language to show how I am fleeing in the part of the performance.
This is Me and Aruna’s finished door mime video that we took in class.
I hope you all enjoy 😀
