Aboriginal Peoples and the performing arts – Option 3
An Aboriginal Studies unit, where students explore the the diversity of Aboriginal performing arts, including dance, music and drama.
A key element of this option is the significance of performing arts to the survival of cultures and identities of Aboriginal Peoples within Australian society. Issues surrounding cultural appropriation, the protection of intellectual and artistic copyright, and the varying and sensitive roles of individuals, communities, and language and cultural groups in the development and expression of performing arts practices by Aboriginal Peoples are investigated. The case study can form the basis through which Option 3 is studied, or it can be undertaken separately at any point throughout the option.
