This subject provides the opportunity for students to explore the skills of character acting while discovering how performance has developed through time to become theatre, as we know it today. Specifically, we practice the
diverse range of acting and improvisation skills required to create interesting characters on stage. The
transformation of one’s self to become another character; the development of Dramatic Elements and the
application of particular theatrical styles are fundamental to this unit. These processes will take place through
guided improvisation as well as through the use of chosen scripts. Year 10 Drama gives students a wide range of practical experiences in the application of these skills while developing individual and group performance skills
through improvisation. Performance work will draw upon students’ own lives and experiences and will investigate different cultures and ideas as we develop our understanding of the actor’s craft.
Aims are to develop:
The content will be delivered through group and individual tasks, focusing on both script and self-devised work. Students will create both ensemble and solo performances.
