Drama activity that helps students portray conflict between characters non-verbally. Includes thirty unique sets of characters and conflicts.

Pantomiming a scene can help young actors truly connect with one another instead of merely reading lines. It also helps them be more present in their bodies and helps them to develop stronger stage movement abilities. In this lesson, students play characters who experience conflict and they must act out the conflict non-verbally.

The lesson includes complete instructions, discussion questions and an alternative way to use the list of characters. There are thirty different pairs of characters and each one includes a specific conflict.

For example:

Waiter and customer
Customer makes waiter make many trips; waiter is frustrated.

Bell-hop and hotel guest
Guest has too many heavy bags, guest is too busy with his/her phone to notice bell-hop struggling.
