Theatre is a dynamic, collaborative and live art form. It is a practical subject that encourages discovery through experimentation, underpinned by a strong theoretical base. Theatre through the IB Diploma Programme scaffolds experiences and understanding in order to develop key skills in practical performance, theatre making processes, performance and text analysis, the ability to work effectively in an ensemble and contribute to the culture of theatre at Queensland Academies Creative Industries.

Throughout the course, the dimensions of theatre in context, theatre process and presenting theatre are established. Formative tasks, which practice skills essential to summative tasks in the Higher Level Diploma Program, are undertaken leading to production based outcomes.

The IB theatre course enables learners to:

  • Rehearse, refine, share and perform scripted and student-devised dramatic works to audiences in both informal and formal settings

  • Work in a range of forms, styles production roles and contexts applying performance and technical production skills to convey meaning to audiences

  • Appreciate theatre from a range of cultural, social, spiritual, historical, political and economic contexts

  • Describe, analyse and evaluate the elements and conventions used in their own practice, and theatre produced by others

  • Explore ideas, feelings and experiences by collaborating in a wide range of activities such as dramatic play, role-play, improvisation and play-building, playwriting and technical theatre practices

  • Reflect on their developing artistry using a consistent journalling process
    Control, manage and synthesise the elements and conventions of theatre.
