By the end of Year 8, students will have explored mime, voice, improvisation and movement in a practical learning environment. They will also be introduced to the technical side of theatre and gain a basic insight into stagecraft elements such as lighting, sound, costume and set design. Students will have the opportunity to apply this knowledge in drama to make and perform. They will also explore different cultures, times and places and communicate their understandings through drama. Students will collaborate with one another to devise, interpret and perform drama. Students will manipulate the elements of drama, narrative and structure to express and communicate meaning. They will apply different performance styles and conventions to convey status, relationships and intention. Performance skills and design elements will be applied to shape and focus theatrical effect for an audience.
Workshops, mime, improvisation, performance, written reviews, reflective journals and written reports using IBMYP criteria aligned with the Australian curriculum.
