Title: Bridging Theatre Techniques: Application of Non-Verbal Communication in Drama to Young Actors
Synopsis:

This study focuses on the reflective processes of nonverbal communication (NVC), a teaching approach implemented in a secondary school drama programme that combines embodied learning, knowledge of production, and integrative learning. It investigates nonverbal communication in both “impetus” and the repetition of precise movements known as “calculated" with students taking part in a specialised theatre programme at the School of the Arts Singapore (SOTA). The thesis is divided into five basic chapters. Firstly, the use of the various theatre techniques introduced and taught at SOTA are summarised, as is the need to look at the NVC approach in teaching drama to young actors. Secondly, the parallel studies that assisted this research are examined. The third and fourth chapters report the findings of the study and discuss its outcomes. Lastly, the thesis suggests possible paths for further research.
