13DR1

13 Drama 1

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Carmela Hughes.

Level 3 Drama is aimed at to refine performance skills, and is suitable for students who have taken Drama before. The course offers both performance and drama theory projects, listed below:

Drama Techniques 

Students will select an extract from an appropriate script to self-direct and perform as either a monologue in or in pairs. If they are attempting Drama Scholarship they must perform as a monologue by themselves. The extract can be from a variety of theatre-forms, including Shakespeare, Naturalism, and Pasifika/Māori Theatre.

Devising 

Students will create, refine and develop a short play centered around the life of a person from history. They may choose to select someone well-known or someone from their own life. They will use drama conventions to craft a performance which showcases an aspect of this person's identity. Students may work in pairs or alone (required if attempting Drama Scholarship). 


Class Production

The class will perform a play across two evenings to an audience of whānau, teachers, friends and invited guests. Students will be expected to work with the teacher and their peers to develop their role and get ready for a live performance. 

Drama Theory 

Students will sit an external exam centered around analysis of a professional production.

Prerequisites

Current 12DR1 students: 

8 credits in 12DR1

New to Drama: 

Spoken and/or written literacy is a must. Will need to discuss directly with new students as the Level 3 course requires a lot of self-management and self-motivation since two of the internals are solo performances.
