Non-Realism
Drama in a non-realistic style can include dramatic action that looks like…

  • Freezeframes: Freezeframes are like creating photographs using our own bodies. They can be used to start and finish scenes, or used halfway through to emphasize an important moment.
  • Exaggerated characterization (language, voice, movement): The way you create a character using voice and movement can be used to emphasize certain attributes of that character.
  • Mask and costume: Masks and non-realistic costumes can be used to help create characters and communicate ideas too.
  • Direct address: Direct address is when a character speaks directly to the audience.
  • Movement or mime: Movement or mime can be used at any time to emphasize an important moment or an important idea.
  • Song and dance: Singing and dancing can help to tell stories and create dramatic meaning.
