Drama

Drama

Drama expresses human experience through a focus on role, action, and tension, played out in time and space.

In drama education, students learn to structure these elements and to use dramatic conventions, techniques, and technologies to create imagined worlds. Through purposeful play, both individual and collaborative, they discover how to link imagination, thoughts, and feelings.

As students work with drama techniques, they learn to use spoken and written language with increasing control and confidence and to communicate effectively using body language, movement, and space. As they perform, analyse, and respond to different forms of drama and theatre, they gain a deeper appreciation of their rich cultural heritage and language and new power to examine attitudes, behaviours, and values.

By means of the drama that they create and perform, students reflect and enrich the cultural life of their schools, whānau, and communities.

Pathways

Drama is an approved subject for University Entrance. Students who study Drama can continue their study at tertiary institutions in Theatre Arts, Performance Arts Studies and Theatre and Film Studies. The study of drama can also lead to working in the theatre, film and entertainment industries.
