IB Theatre

About the Course

The IB Diploma Program theatre course is a multifaceted course of study. Because theatre nourishes, sustains and extends the human spirit, it is a forever evolving art form. The course will explore theatre’s evolution through a multitude of perspectives-- performer, group ensemble, director, production team, dramaturg, and spectator. The IB Theatre course will allow students to think more critically about how, and why, theatre reflects and illuminates society of the past, the present, and the future. Our studies will expose how theatre is forever traditional in its purpose yet forever transformative in its formula.

Theatre can only be curated through storytelling, imagination, and energy. Through a variety of thought-provoking and accelerated lessons and activities, students will explore theatre in different roles. By engaging with theatre both practically and abstractly, students will garner a deeper appreciation for theatre arts. The course will also emphasize the importance of working both individually as an artist and collaboratively as part of an ensemble.
