Huon Mackinnon-Farnworth's insight:

Have a read of this excerpt from Aftershocks, an Australian play about the 1989 Newcastle earthquake that destroyed the Workers' club, and written by Paul Brown. These are recollections taken from the people that where in the club at the time of the earthquake. Don't worry about reading the second scene (as the excerpt finishes half way through a line). Then answer the question below!

2. How are you going to design a minimalistic set so that it doesn't distract from the performer and what they are saying, but also to convey dramatic tension and any other of the elements of drama? Or are you just relying on the actors to set the scene?

1. How are you using the elements of drama in your performance to benefit the understanding of the audience? E.g are you using focus to draw attention to a main character, plot point or script to further the audiences understanding of the play?

2. Think of four ways to convey the elements of drama in your peace without using words. E.g levels, body language, freeze frames etc.
