Year 13 – Unit 5 Artaudian Soundscapes In pairs develop three sounds that might appear in the following settings Countryside Prison Mental Asylum Busy street Street at night Torture chamber Work on these for a few minutes for each one. Join with the whole class to recreate each one again, try to all agree on using a different sound each. Try again but spread yourselves around the room and add one action or gesture to go with that sound. It doesn’t matter how bizarre it is. For some you may wish to join into a pair to work on the actions together. (For example the rack in the torture chamber). Get one person to come out of each one and to walk around the room. Try it with different lighting if possible, put back ups to windows to gain a blackout, lights off, one light on etc. Change the person each time and get the person in their own time to narrate the setting of the scene (E.G: It was a cold night when I decided to walk down the street. I could see Ernie crouching in the corner as usual etc etc.) Choose three scenes to work on. Imagine it is the opening to a performance and this is what you will be doing when the audience come in. (Like Marat Sade with their mental asylum a few years ago).
