Unit Description



‘Page to Stage’ will introduce students to the processes by which a script is turned into a live event. Emphasis will fall upon the interpretation of existing scripted material and its subsequent realisation as performance. Textual analysis will contribute towards the academic content of the unit and will inform the ways in which the written word might be translated into speech and movement through the process of acting. The reading and analysis of a range of scripts will form the basis for the workshops, which will explore possibilities and problems that exist in transferring drama from the page and on to the stage through the medium of performance.

Syllabus



 Analysis, interpretation and evaluation of scripted material.


 Practical demonstration through performance and theoretical study of approaches, techniques and methods enabling the movement of a script from page to stage.


 Detection of performance opportunities, ambiguities and challenges implicit in the written word.

On completion of this unit students will be able to:


  1. Interpret a script for performance.




  1. Understand the processes by which a live performance is created out of the written word.




  1. Effect the transition from page to stage through performance.
