At Prestige we consider this subject as very important because of the “soft skills’ that it adds to every learner’s portfolio who studied this subject. Learners tend to do better in public speaking, they learn to have a lot more self confidence and that stand them in good stead in any classroom and also in all relationships. The also learn to have a sense of humour and how to express themselves better.
Drama is a social art form which integrates visual, aural, physical, kinesthetic and performance elements to communicate, explore, reflect on and enhance human experience. The subject Dramatic Arts encompasses a range of performance modes across a variety of media and within a diversity of cultural and social contexts.
The subject Dramatic Arts develops and promotes human creativity as a rich, diverse and productive resource through dramatic communication, interaction and representation. Learning in the Dramatic Arts involves using experience, reflection, analysis and re-experience to gain skills, knowledge, values and insight.
Creative work consists of constructing and performing drama. Through a variety of dramatic forms and practices, learners explore characters and issues drawn from a text or from their own ideas, cultures and contexts. The process of creating, making and presenting encourages questioning, justifying, interpreting and shaping meaning.
Learners will reflect on the nature, impact and meaning of dramatic processes, practices and products. They will develop skills in describing, analysing, interpreting, evaluating and appreciating these. They will learn to respond to their own and others’ drama with empathy and sensitivity in order to address prejudice, stereotyping and bigotry. Learners will acquire a specialised vocabulary for evaluating their own work and that of other dramatic artists with increased culture-fair aesthetic awareness. They will learn to mediate their own experiences, concerns and contexts through dramatic processes and be able to reflect on the ways in which the Dramatic Arts explore, interpret and intensify human experience.
