Third session: creating a story and staging it
In the third session, participants were divided in two groups. The facilitators asked the two groups to create a scenario for the stories imagined in the second sessions, so participants were stimulated to create a set and pick up a common story to be staged. They were invited to practice with puppets and to create a common topics into a plot. It was suggested that each group will compose a scenario for a simple, yet meaningful action on stage and will write it down. The main focus should be on describing the plot in detail, scene by scene, as it was during the exercise meant for practicing animation skills. Such a scenario should first of all answer the question: What exactly does the puppet do and what happens on stage? The group jointly decided also about the number of puppets to be used, about the elements of stage and space where to perform. So after the practicing, the participants agreed on a story and started creating objects for the performance.
