In Drama, students:
refine and extend their understanding and use of role, character, relationships and situation
extend the use of voice and movement to sustain belief in character
maintain focus and manipulate space and time, language, ideas and dramatic action
experiment with mood and atmosphere, use devices such as contrast, juxtaposition and dramatic symbol and modify production elements to suit different audiences
draw on drama from a range of cultures, times and locations as they experience drama
explore the drama and influences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and those of the Asia region
learn that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have converted oral records to other technologies
learn that over time there has been further development of different traditional and contemporary styles of drama and that dramatists can be identified through the style of their work, as they explore drama forms
explore meaning and interpretation, forms and elements, and social, cultural and historical influences of drama as they make and respond to drama
evaluate actors’ success in expressing the directors’ intentions and the use of expressive skills in drama they view and perform
maintain safety in drama and in interaction with other actors
build on their understanding from previous bands of the roles of artists and audiences as they engage with more diverse performances.
By the end of Year 10, students analyse the elements of drama, forms and performance styles and evaluate meaning and aesthetic effect in drama they devise, interpret, perform and view. They use their experiences of drama practices from different cultures, places and times to evaluate drama from different viewpoints.
Students develop and sustain different roles and characters for given circumstances and intentions. They perform devised and scripted drama in different forms, styles and performance spaces. They collaborate with others to plan, direct, produce, rehearse and refine performances. They select and use the elements of drama, narrative and structure in directing and acting to engage audiences. They refine performance and expressive skills in voice and movement to convey dramatic action.
