DRA201

Drama Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Matua Paora-Quirk

Drama 201

Drama at all senior levels is about 80% creating, crafting, devising, rehearsing, demonstrating and performing. The other 20% is research, reflecting and writing. Drama at Level 2 is about ‘understanding’. This means making informed decisions about your performances, making connections to theatre of the past and thinking perceptively about the world you live in. You will build on your skills, develop depth and experiment with other methods of performance. Students who have a career interest in lighting, sound, costume or stage makeup may be able to undertake specific standards at the HOD Drama’s discretion.




Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students must have ‘Performance Blacks’ – black t-shirt and pants to be worn for assessment pieces.

There may be a trip to see live theatre. We keep the cost down as much as possible.

Recommended Prior Learning

Preferably you will have completed Level 1 Drama, but if you have great attendance and a proven willingness to participate then you may be accepted at the HOD Drama’s discretion.
