Drama: Solo Structures: Magic Realism Performance Style

To support Year 12 Drama

Magic Realism Performance Style

This is a form of theatre in which the real and the fantastical, the natural and the supernatural coexist on the stage. It is exemplified by:

  • use of non-human characters and/or characters who possess supernatural powers
  • use of transformation and the fantastical
  • a sense of eeriness, mystery or magic
  • strong shifts in either time or place
  • the presentation of extraordinary events.
