Drama: to dramatise social, cultural or envirnmental issues

Activity 1

To dramatise social, cultural or environmental issues

[lo 4.2]

Drama is exciting. It’s like playing your favourite game. Your educator will guide you through this drama activity in order for you to, not only play, but also learn about the wonderful creative art of drama.


I’m sure you have sports events at your school. Remember on the last sports meeting you had at your school or at your rival school. What did the sports field look like after the meeting? Now, let’s play!

Exercise 1: Exploring

Go to the sports field and imagine the situation in the setting.

Visualise the littering and damage done to the setting.

The sports field is the stage you will be performing on.

Discuss the situation and the setting with your educator and the rest of the class.

Give ideas what the stage will look like for the performance.

Exercise 2: Characterisation

Choose a character you would like to be.

Discuss the different characteristics of the character you have chosen.

Go on the stage in character and explore the scene.

Think about costumes and props for your character.

Exercise 3: Improvisation

Put suggest ideas and solutions for the scene.

Select actions and dialogue for your character in order to solve the problem at hand.

Improvise a short scene in the setting.

Choose aspects from the improvisation and put it together to devise scenes for the ‘play’.

Rehearse the scenes.

Perform the play.

The duration of the play should not exceed 10 minutes.

Learning Outcomes(LOs)

LO 4

EXPRESSION AND COMMUNICATION The learner is able to analyse and use multiple forms of communication and expression in Arts and Culture.

We know this when the learner:

MUSIC (4.3 – 4.5)

  • identifies and sings songs from different societies, cultures and contexts, that seem to communicate the same idea
  • uses own compositions of poetry and song to draw attention to current social and environmental issues;
  • communicates a musical intention using the interface of pitch-based harmony (mellophony) instruments.

DRAMA (4.2)

  • dramatises social, cultural or environmental issues through the use of different drama techniques such as tableaux, verbal dynamic sequences or role-plays.

DANCE (4.1)

  • dances in different places (e.g. inside and outside, in the classroom, on stage, on wood, concrete, grass or mud), and describes how dance is affected by space and the physical environments.
