Students continue the exploration of character through the Unit “Melodrama”.

Students discover this theatrical style through group improvisation and scripting.  Indigenous Physical Theatre allows students to use the conventions as stimulus in the creation of a movement-based performance which challenges students to work in a non-naturalistic environment. Drama folio involves tasks such as reflections, evaluations, tests and theatrical treatments.
