Drama – Playbuilding – Devising with text program

The teaching and learning activities in the Stage 5 'Playbuilding – Devising with text' program are designed to allow students to engage with a range of texts as a stimulus for devising.

Students will create a theatrical world, in which characters interact within dramatic moments to progress the narrative, heightened by elements of production and style choices, with a clear structure and dramatic intention. Students will engage with workshops that encourage them to collaborate, explore, generate, critique, select, document, refine and present their theatrical works.

You may adapt the following support material to meet the individual needs of your school.
