Drama is interaction, action, and reaction. Learners work collaboratively with each other, with ideas, with text, with symbols and images and with technologies, to tell stories, challenge ideas, create, and perform dramatic work. Drama is founded on principles of trust, empathy, embodiment and performance. Drama utilises both personal and universal experiences to inform the creative process. Drama expresses ideas, emotions, and stories through body and voice. In drama, working in role is central to the notion of embodiment, achieved through research and committed portrayal of characters and their histories. Drama reflects or holds a mirror up to our world. Drama interprets the way in which others interact in past and present cultures. Through the performance and experience of drama, we explore and challenge ideas and perceptions of the world, and of ourselves.
