How can we use theatre to tackle social issues?


Project Overview

The students all researched a particular issue within society that has affected their local community and beyond. They were required to look into how the media represents and reports on these issues as well as learning about Verbatim Theatre as a form.

What skills were developed?

Students developed their performance to camera skills as they were focused on producing a piece of filmed theatre. Script writing and editing played a key role in enabling students to be successful in these projects.

How was it assessed?

Students were assessed by a sample group of their target audience. They were assessed on how they were able to creatively approach the process, their performance and script writing skills but also their performance's suitability and ability to reach the target audience.
