What do we mean by staging? Staging refers to the way students can perform feelings, actions, incidents, sayings, etc. When students perform, they play, which means that the performance is done in a safe environment, where they can be as inventive and creative as they like. This is especially important for 13 – 18 year olds acting in front of the class (or a camera) which can be a real threat, especially when it is new to them. Therefore we start with a “performance”, where every student can feel and at ease.
