Subject Overview:

The foundations are laid for the development of the art of acting and the composition of original performances. The elements of acting are taught through classes, tutorials, projects and individual and group performances, and they include working spontaneously and using this spontaneity within the theatrical context; working authentically: emotionally, psychologically, imaginatively, physically and vocally; sustaining authenticity and concentration for the duration of a dramatic sequence; playing dramatic action, working through intention; analysing text for use in rehearsal; allowing transformation to take place using the materials of theatre and creating theatrical imagery.

Assessment: Assessment is based upon class participation, level of preparation, and the degree to which the stated outcomes have been achieved. Progressive assessment (70%); rehearsal (10%); performance (20%). Students must achieve a pass in all three areas.
