First semester theme:
 Characters creation 
Second semester theme: Scenic representation


Introduction


For the first semester we will create a virtual house, in which a group of beings will live together for a couple of days. Why are we talking about beings and not people? Because we will have everything, fairies, superheroes, aliens, cartoon characters, not just human beings. That is why, we are going to create those characters that will live in the house, each one with very different characteristics from the other, and we will base our work on what we like or dislike, different emotions for giving them life. Afterwards, we will see what is going to happen, and how will those characters feel after they live for some days with other strange characters.

For the second semester, we will be working about "Representation". Sometimes we do not know, but every dramatic text contains hundreds of worlds. For example, a single scene could have different emotions, actions, and it could be performed in different places, with different characters. Why? Because, it is every single reader how gives the own interpretation. Here, we will be exploring different ways to represent a scene, we will write them, and we will explore from different perspectives how a scene could be represented on stage, and preparing at the same time the final project of the grade.
