Year 9 Drama
Year 9 Drama students have recently been participating in a theatre styles ‘crash course’, navigating their way through Greek theatre, Shakespeare, Melodrama and more.
This past week, they took on Epic theatre, a non-naturalistic movement largely led by practitioner Bertolt Brecht. Both classes learnt the history and significance of this style before developing didactic theatre work and performing in front of their peers. All groups made effective use of non-naturalistic conventions in delivering meaning and morals through performance.
I congratulate them on these original and engaging pieces of theatre!
