Year 9 ARTS - Drama 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: N. Brown

Drama 1 
9DRA1 is a course for those who want to participate in performing for, and working with others. It requires students who enjoy public performance and are willing to try various exercises both individually and in a whole group. The students will need to be confident enough to participate to then build their skills. Students are able and encouraged to do both drama courses if they wish.

Actual assessments in this half year course are:
Tribal introductions – a group devised unit about a fictional world that needs to select a new leader with a created ceremony.

The ‘Human Zoo’ unit – a multi focus physical theatre performance for local kindergartens whereby you inhabit an animal character and interact with the audience.

Voice unit – students individually are to learn and perform a poem and present it to the audience using voice techniques. Technologies of lighting, projections and costume are included in this unit.

Participation in class exercises and public performances are a compulsory part of this course.
