During Term 1 in Performing Arts, students have been developing and practicing their facial expressions in order to create and build on the Element of Drama - Character.
Facial expressions help to tell an audience about a character and how they are feeling. Facial expressions can also inform the audience about a situation within a scene, as they convey the feelings and emotions of characters.
Body movement and language are important to understand a character and a scene. Body language is a form of of non-verbal communication that can add more meaning to the spoken words of characters within drama.
Voice & Dialogue
In Performing Arts Yan Yean and Carome Learning Communities have been focusing on voice and dialogue. The focus is to develop character through voice and to practice reading dialogue loud and clear for audience members to hear.
