Extracts from this document...


EVALUATION PHASE Arbeit Macht Frei The evaluations you have to make refer to the 'Arbeit Macht Frei' work covered in class. Task A In devising your piece of drama based on the 'Arbeit Macht Frei 'text, you used a variety of drama conventions: (Mask, Block, Blanket) Pick a minimum of 1 convention used in your performance and explain in detail * What the convention is? * How was it used in your drama? Give examples from your performance. * What it communicated to the audience. (You may wish to quote from the script when giving specific examples).
