Here is another fun video from the PILL filming project involving the Out of the PILLbox Players (OOPPs); Jody Fuller, Glenna Kimball, Liz Korabek-Emerson, Mary Ellen McElroy. Robin Masia, Corrie Owens-Beauchesne, Anita Remig, and Dwyer Vessey! (You guys are amazing and I love you all!)
In “Gibberish Talk Show Host” adapted from Kate Koppet’s Training to Imagine, there is an interdependence of three people as they impact each others’ roles and build a “scene” together.
- The Expert understands but does not speak English and doesn’t need to know anything about the topic.
- The Translator can make up anything she wants while trying to stay in the spirit and tone expressed by the expert.
- The Talk Show Host can guide the conversation with any combination of cues from the expert or translator.
Here Anita (Talk Show Host), Dwyer (Translator), and Mary Ellen (Gibberish Expert) take on the topic of-Horse-riding suggested by their peers. Meanwhile, the rest of us look on in supportive fascination and wondering…what will happen next? 🙂
While this activity is engaging and hilarious to watch, it can also be a powerful teaching tool to help nurses and doctors communicate better!
And thanks to Chad Cordner for production support and with Colin McCarthy and Eddie Pimansone for manning the cameras!
