Unit 1: Practitioners in Practice (40%)
Section 1 - Learners will research and explore practically the work of others including:
- Two practitioners of the centre's choice
- One extract from a centre-chosen performance text
Section 2 - Learners create a devised performance influenced by their exploration of the work of others from Section 1.
In this section learners complete a portfolio of evidence of the practical work they have created and developed during the devising process. This will include analysis and evaluation of their own work.
Section 3 - Learners design for the final polished devised piece of drama or theatre and realise their designs in a performance for an audience.
This section requires learners to create and develop ideas to communicate meaning, gaining an understanding of the skill set needed to work on a performance.
Unit 2: Exploring and Performing Theatre (20%)
Learners are required to study one performance text in its entirety and work collaboratively to perform part of the text.
The text to be studied will be selected by the centre. Texts should allow sufficient opportunity for learners to work in depth on their acting skills.
Learners will explain their artistic intention for their performance in the concept pro forma found on the OCR website.
