This course is for students who are interested in drama and want to perform. It is also for students who want to try drama, but are not keen on being centre stage, to gain the understanding of the elements and conventions of drama and explore their own creativeness through their puppet. You will learn about the elements, conventions and techniques of drama that will enable you to perform existing drama scripts and devise (create) drama performances that are original and your own. Classes will involve gaining an understanding of the history of puppets and how they have been used around the world.
We will explore why puppets are so intriguing to the human brain and we can use this to build a character through vocal expression. We will have a chance to make different types of puppets, which we will use in our performances.
