PERF11014 From Play to Performance
This course focuses on the distinctive challenges
and responsibilities of making theatre for and with young people.
It will begin with an investigation of children's dramatic
play, which is the source of all theatrical expression. It will
proceed to examine the philosophies, acting and production styles,
genres and techniques of theatre for young people. They will be applied
and developed in the process of devising plays for infant and primary
aged children. The course will involve practical research with potential
audiences, theatrical improvisation and ideological critique of children's
literature. The outcome will involve public performances of group
devised plays as part of the CQU Story Book Theatre Company.
