More course information
This is a two year A Level course. Over the two years you will study, using a practical, performance based approach, two plays from a performance, design and analytical perspective. You will explore the dramatic, social and historical context of the plays, experiment with a range of dramatic interpretations using a variety of theatre conventions. You will see and review live theatre using what you have seen to inform your own practice.
You will also explore the rehearsal and performance techniques of a range of theatre practitioners: directors, writers, devisors, actors, designers and companies in order to prepare you for the practical assessments. You will produce a performance of an extract from a play and practically explore another two extracts from different plays, showing the clear influence of one of the practitioners studied; you will also devise an original piece of drama from a stimulus, using the techniques of a different practitioner. The aim of the course is for you to become an expert in Theatre, not just acting.
