This category challenges the student to be creative under pressure - , in a limited amount of time. The candidate is given a title shortly before their performance and must prepare something within the limited preparation time allocated.

It is important not to use pre rehearsed ideas or re-do an idea that worked in preparation rehearsals.
Trust your creativity as the original ideas are always the best the first time they are performed.

RULES

  • The performance of pre-rehearsed work will be disqualified, but students are encouraged to practise improvisation styles to understand what works best.
  • No uniform or costumes allowed.
  • Only neutral (preferably black or white) clothing may be worn. No shoes, socks or stockings.
  • Benches, chairs and tables only may be used.
  • Speech must be used where appropriate.
  • Time limits to be strictly adhered to. A bell will be rung when the minimum time is reached and again when the maximum time is reached.
  • Number of entries restricted to 5 per school per class.
