VCE Drama: Dramatic Elements
Terms in this set (9)
The most significant moment of tension in a drama, often occurring towards the end of the play. These can occur multiple times. The action of the play usually unravels after this is used.
This generally occurs when a character cannot achieve an objective due to an obstacle. This could be internal or external. This can be shown through physical, verbal or psychological means.
This presents the unlike or opposite in order to highlight or emphasise the difference. This can be explored in many ways and can include different characters, settings, times, themes, elements, stagecraft and performance styles.
This is overall feeling or emotion that a performance can evoke. This can be achieved through the manipulation of acting, conventions or stagecraft.
This is a regular pattern of sounds, words or actions. Performance can use this to influence the emotional nature of the plot, the pace of line delivery as well as scene transitions, length and dialogue within them.
This is created by the performer through the use of voice, body percussion and objects to create an effect in performance and enhance meaning.
This involved the way the actor/s use/s the performance area to communicate meaning, to define settings, to represent status and to create actor-audience relationships. This can be achieved through the use of levels, proximity and depth.
This is used to create meaning that is not literal. It allows performers to communicate ideas and themes through words, stagecraft and expressive skills.
This is the suspense that holds an audience's attention as a performance unfolds. The release of this can have dramatic or comic effect.
