Impromptu Duet Acting (IDA) Generator

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Each time the "Regenerate Topics" button is clicked, the generator will randomly display 3 Characters, 3 Locations and 3 Situations.

  • Student pairs should select 2 Characters, 1 Location and 1 Situation from the results.

  • Each pair is allotted 30 minutes to prepare a 4-7 minute skit based on the information selected.

  • Coaches may allow the use of a table and two chairs for the scene; however, all other props must be pantomimed.

  • Evaluate students based on plot and character development, creative introductions and ability to pantomime props.

  • This event is offered at some tournaments in the state of Kansas; but also works well as an in-class exercise to improve creativity, spontaneity and student interaction.
