Historical Concepts and Drama: Looking at a view of Drama techniques in action

I made 5 suggestions on the back of the assignment page for this History/Drama exercise, but you may feel free to experiment with another approach.  Remember:  your performance must explore 4 out of the 7 concepts listed on the poster in the class (and on the apologies for the poor resolution of the photocopy).

I spent a bit of time hunting down some YouTube examples of the techniques I listed.  Here they are and some of the variations of them.
