Activity: Exploring Imagination and The Suspension of Disbelief with the performance group, Hotel Modern

1. An introduction to the performance group, Hotel Modern, and their performance of The Great War.

Hotel Modern was established in 1997. Its members are Arlène Hoornweg and Pauline Kalker, who both graduated from Arnhem Theatre School, and visual artist, model maker and performer, Herman Helle. The group works together with (sound) artists for their performances, including Arthur Sauer (The Great War, Rococo, Shrimp Tales) and Ruud van der Pluijm (KAMP). They blend visual art, object theatre, drama, music, film, modelling and performance in evocative productions. Scale models play an important role in their performances: they are used to, literally, look at the world from a macro perspective. Their approach is unique in the theatre world, and they use it to focus on subjects in entirely new ways.

Hotel Modern are idealistic in the sense that they believe that watching and experiencing of theatre can encourage reconciliation. They try to offer solace to a society and a world in which people sometimes seem fearful of one another. This consolation is not achieved by creating a saccharine performance, but by representing harsh reality in a refined, poetic manner. (source:

2. Imagination

3. Suspension of Disbelief
Suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief is a term coined in 1817 by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgment concerning the implausibility of the narrative.

Activity: Suspension of Disbelief

Assignment : "Mystery Box" Journal entry

In his talk director J.J. Abram says:

And what I love about this box, and what I realize I sort of do in whatever it is that I do, is I find myself drawn to infinite possibility, that sense of potential. And I realize that mystery is the catalyst for imagination.

Create a "mystery box" for your 3DSP story and have one of your characters attempt to discover what is inside the box. Explore your character's search for discovery not what they end up discovering.

Assignment #2: Review, edit, revise, and post a new draft of your 3DSP story on your wiki page. Include the following information at the top of your story: Title and the site(s) where your story is set.
