Hot-seating is a drama technique where one pupil takes on a particular role and other students ask questions. The performer lets the viewers in on their background, behavior and motivation. It is important for the student to pay attention to their role/character, especially when they are directed by the tension of being in an interview. Students embraced this improv activity and so did their audience.
This negotiation of situation and roles is an important and necessary phase in all drama.
