Summary of content

Year 7

Students are introduced to the fundamentals skills of ensemble work and basic performance skills. They will develop their understanding and application of performance skills and explorative strategies. This will be executed through the exploration of genre and finally results in the creation of an original piece of theatre based on a topic they have been studying.

Year 8

Students will consider the work of several influential practitioners from Stanislavski to Berkoff, deepening their knowledge of dramatic style and form. Students will apply their knowledge in rehearsal as performance skills continue to be developed, culminating in a scripted performance.

 As their knowledge and confidence deepens, students will reflect on a whole text and consider the challenges and opportunities involved in the staging of the play.

Year 9

Students expand their repertoire by considering a variety of classical and modern texts from the perspective of performer, director and designer, encouraging an analytical engagement with the text.
