Drama is the expression and exploration of personal, emotional, social and cultural worlds, through role and situation, that engages, entertains and challenges. Students create meaning as drama makers, performers and audiences as they engage with and analyse their own and others’ stories and points of view.

In making and staging drama, they learn how to be focused, innovative and resourceful, collaborate and take on responsibilities for drama presentations. Students develop a sense of curiosity and empathy by exploring the diversity of drama in the contemporary world and in other times, traditions, places and cultures. (SCSA 2017).

Aims

Drama knowledge and skills ensure that, individually and collaboratively, students develop:

  • confidence, empathy and self-awareness to explore, depict and celebrate human experience, take risks and extend their own creativity through drama
  • knowledge of how to analyse, apply and control the elements, skills, techniques, processes, conventions, forms and styles of drama in traditional and contemporary drama to engage and create meaning for audiences
  • knowledge of the role of group processes and design and technology in the creative process of devising and interpreting drama to make meaning for audiences
  • knowledge of traditional and contemporary drama through responding as critical and active participants and audience members.
