Drama Games For Those Who Like To Say No

Chris Johnston
 

A dip-in, flick-through, quick-fire resource book in the Drama Games series, this title is for teachers and workshop leaders working with difficult or reluctant students, youth groups, young offenders, and all those who seem intent on saying ‘no’ to whatever is offered them.

For these groups, drama games and activities need to be robust and engaging, and the dozens that appear in this book have been devised with this in mind - and then tested by their target players. Each page features clear instructions on How to Play, notes on the Benefits of the Game, and advice on age range, number of players and timing.

Following the ninety games and exercises aimed at developing core skills, the book offers scenarios for a series of improvisational challenges that test participants' abilities in mediation, communication, negotiation, assertiveness and managing emotions. Also included is a collection of games aimed at preparing teachers and workshop leaders for facilitating challenging sessions.

The ultimate aim is to encourage reluctant participants to engage, collaborate and develop not just skills for drama but skills for life.

House of Games

Chris Johnston
 

A treasure trove of drama games and exercises, House of Games has proved itself an immensely valuable resource for teachers, theatre directors and drama workshop leaders.

Review
'It is friendly, accessible, well structured and full of good advice - much of it plain common sense... Reading it is like being in a room buzzing with relaxed and informed conversation about basic principles, and good ruses for realising both general and specific aims.'  Mick Wallis, Theatre Research International

The Improvisation Game

Discovering the Secrets of Spontaneous Performance

Chris Johnston
 

In his new book, Johnston wants us to consider improvisation not as a step towards something else but as an end in itself, and embarks on a journey through the whacky — but actually deeply serious — world of improvisation, in theatre, dance, music or any mix of these. He talks to forty or so key practitioners in the field - and passes on many of the techniques, tricks and, yes, games they use to try to stay permanently fresh.
