Watch excerpts and interviews from the 2016 Aboriginal Drama Program. Aboriginal elders and artists worked with 27 students in Years 7 to 11 across 4 days to explore Dreamtime stories and develop their skills in playbuilding and scripting scenes, as well as performance and characterisation techniques.
Filmed at NSW State Drama Camp in 2014, actor and teacher Sophie Kelly introduces steps in exploring and developing a monologue for performance, using Lindy Davies's three step process of dropping in, abstract/impulse and Blueprint, to ultimately create 'authentic connection'.
Examine the elements required for creating an effective play built or scripted primary drama piece. The featured primary teachers deconstruct their state drama festival plays and offer strategies and tips for teachers to create their own class or ensemble based drama pieces.
Discover how to use images, text, ideas and stories as a starting point to devise original pieces of theatre in collaboration with others. Learn how to create group works that have a beginning, middle and end and deliver a clear social message or themes to an audience. Starting with improvisation, ideas and scenes are refined to produce a complete piece of theatre.
This course provides a broad range of activities, movement and devising for drama teachers to take into the classroom. The featured model lessons enable participants to understand how to deliver strategies for devising performances in the drama classroom and gradually increase complexity and depth of character development and scene work to effectively engage an audience.
