PYP Drama

PYP Drama

Drama explores how we express ourselves physically and vocally. At FLAG students are exposed to a variety of dramatic forms including creative movement, impersonation, improvisation, mask work, mime, musical, role play, pantomime, puppetry, scripted drama, and skit. In responding, students should experience a wide variety of scripts and stories from different times, cultures and places and, where possible, access live theatre performances and presentations.

Students have opportunities to present their creative work to an audience, to witness their peers in performance and through this become critically aware audience members. Students explore the use of facial expressions, gestures, movement, posture and vocal techniques to convey emotional or cultural meaning to both characters and stories.
