My Cape is Under My Shirt: Creating The Superheroes We See In Ourselves

By Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay

Everyone has a superhero within them. They just need to discover it. In this four-part video series, local artist Saymoukda Vongsay leads immersive exercises to explore your superhero and superpower. Use your imagination and creative thinking skills as Saymoukda walks through the process of developing, composing and acting out your personal origin narratives using visual storyboarding, interactive props and theatrical skill.

Part 1: Writing Your Superhero Origin Story

Every superhero needs an origin story. Saymoukda walks through the main components all origin stories need, then shares how you can bring it all together to create your own story using the Fairytale Method.

Part 2: Making a Cape

No superhero costume is complete without a cape! Make your own using some simple materials you already have at home.

Part 3: Writing and Performing Your Superhero Monologue

A monologue is an important speech that a character gives about something that really matters to them. Using the Madlib Method, Saymoukda teaches you how to write your own superhero monologue.
