It’s not a Drama class – it’s a Theatre Company/Ensemble
Using NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION IMPROVISATIONS to create a healthy drama ensemble.
10-15 min What this means and WHY
I will give examples on the idea of Positive Participation and Collaboration creating a level playing field for all and why this strategy may seem difficult at first but it’s the importance of CONSISTENCY that will pay off further down the track in Year 10 and then Stage 6
5 min Recap
1. NON-VERBAL COMMUNICATION IMPROVISATIONS ideas come from the physical interacting not from the head/intellect.
2. Learning that everybody has something to offer.
3. Creating something out of nothing.
4. Enjoying accepting others ideas and in return they accepting yours.

Video course (coming soon). THEATRE PRACTITIONERS ONLINE
This online workshop explores ways to use Commedia as both a way to support both developing and experienced teachers in a logical and practical way to give them skills to engage and challenge students to take ownership of their own learning.
Methods to be discussed includes:
Setting up the ‘ritual of respectful behaviour’
Understanding students ‘individual learning gifts’
and through these encouraging a creative collaborative working environment that forms the framework for the teaching of all current Drama Education content.
By developing a systemic approach to fostering a new kind of Ensemble – classroom ensemble, teachers will encourage students to recognise and embrace their own strengths and celebrate abilities with their classmates.
These same skills will enable students to gain an appreciation of the ‘ensemble theatre learning environment’, and skills that extend beyond the drama room
