Letters of the Body

Pera Kids
Ages 7-9

Play a music of your choosing, and find somewhere inside the house that you can move freely. If you are ready and full of energy, we will begin to imitate the words and figures in the graffiti on display in the “Language of the Wall” exhibit. If you were to spell using your body movements, how would you depict the letters? Let’s try and find out! Begin by spelling your name using body movements along with the music. You can use any pose or any part of the environment while forming the letters. You can lie down on the ground, stand up, or tiptoe; it’s all up to you. You can form the letters of your name and surname, or surprise your family members by spelling their names instead. You would not believe what you will be able to accomplish once you set your body free...
