WELCOME TO YEAR 12 DRAMA, TERRACE
YEAR 12 DRAMA OVERVIEW
Drama Co-ordinator: Ms Emma Hatchett (email@example.com
Welcome to Year 12 Drama. During the year we will be exploring a variety of classic and contemporary texts as we explore a variety of dramatic forms and styles.
During Term One we will engage with an understanding of different theatre styles (commencing with Absurdism) through workshops, readings and performance analysis. We will be exploring the text of Waiting For Godot for our first performance assessment as well as viewing a production of 'The Dead Devils of Cockle Creek' at La Boite Theatre as the subject of our first Responding Task essay.
We will continue our study in Term 2 exploring Elizabethan Theatre through the lense of Postmodernism, focusing 3 of Shakespeare's tragedies. This will culminate in our Class Production in the WINTERFEST in Term 3.
In Terms 3 & 4, we will explore the concept of the Zeitgeist through contemporary Australian and Indigenous Performance strategies.
