“That’s the magic of art and the magic of theatre: it has the power to transform an audience, an individual, or en masse, to transform them and give them an epiphanal experience that changes their life, opens their hearts and their minds and the way they think.” – Brian Stokes Mitchell
Drama or Theatre makes an individual active and affects their cognitive, dynamic and social aspects. Drama activities give an opportunity to the participants to examine various social roles and problems. Solution to the problems are also examined during these interactions, which helps participants to gain experience in real world to create an imaginary world in drama. Besides these, children identify with the roles and they become sensitive towards the problems. Therefore, the contribution of drama is not only to learning and teaching, but to training as well.
Naysa and RJ Shreya introduced the Mask Club students of Class II to present a short act on the advantages and disadvantages of Mobile phones. The students dressed in different characters performed beautifully and discussed the issues related to the topic. The little artists came to the conclusion that mobile phones can be of great help if it is used judiciously.
Learning drama helps in building confidence, enhance imagination, builds empathy, develops cooperation and communication as well as increases concentration and is an great outlet for emotion.
