Have you ever wondered how actors remember all those lines and create a living, breathing character?

In this elective we will explore the development of character from the page to the stage, through workshopping scripts, scene work and improvisation. We will develop a character from a text and work towards a solo performance or a short scene, from material that the student selects.

Students will also attend and review an external performance, this will be an assessed task.

Class Work

  • Performance based assessment at end of semester
  • Research assignments on Theatrical Styles
  • Performance Review

This elective would best suit students who have undertaken previous Drama units and who might be considering VCE Drama.
