Assembly Performance - Talking Body Language
A Theatre performance by Roger Jenkins
Brief on the Performance - Talking Body Language
A highly entertaining one-man show by Roger Jenkins and more than a dozen of his beautiful and highly expressive wooden masks. With more than 170 performances in schools since its debut in the 1996 Arts Education Programme, this show vividly succeeds in showing students how the way they present themselves plays an important part in how people (eg future employers, colleagues!) will respond to them.
Our attitudes, our demeanour, our behaviour are all critical factors in contributing to our success and happiness.
Alongside the masks, Mr Jenkins incorporates stories designed to reinforce the message that this could happen to the audience – that they do have control over how they interact with people and how they can influence the way people react with them.
At the end of the performance, students will understand:
a) The power of masks - how they exaggerate certain features and communicate a character or an attitude.
b) That we all wear 'masks' in everyday life in the different roles we play - as students, siblings, sons and daughters, neighbours.
