The show – Exploring local community

In this unit students use improvisation, movement and script to develop and present a performance about a local community event.

They will make links with learning in human society and its environment. The specific sequence described here refers to a particular event, the local or regional show. The sequence can be readily adapted to other events which are relevant to particular communities.

They will:

  • sustain and build belief in roles
  • use drama elements to create effects
  • show the development of movement and language skills
  • form opinions about drama.

Drama forms:

  • improvisation
  • movement
  • script.
