The ACT Senior Drama Curriculum states:

Drama is the language of humanity and an integral art form. It makes meaning of the world through enactment to represent, question and communicate concepts and ideas. The study of Drama enables learners to engage with innovative thinkers and to experience drama as artists and audience members. In broad terms, learning in Drama involves making and responding. Students learn as artists, by making Drama works that communicate to audiences. They learn as audiences, by responding critically to Drama. These actions are taught together as each depends on the other (BSSS, ACT, 2021, p. 19)
