Theatre Arts

The IB Theatre Arts programme, offered at Higher Level, will engage with a diverse forms of theatre in theoretical, historical and cultural contexts. Beyond the study of theatre, and more importantly, students will learn by engaging in theatre practice and performance. At the core of the theatre course lies a concern with clarity of understanding, clear intent, critical thinking, reflective analysis, effective involvement and imaginative synthesis—all achieved through practical engagement in theatre.

Critical to every IB Theatre Arts student is the importance of working independently and as a member of an ensemble.
