Why is movement important in drama?
Movement is important in drama because, like in real life,
movement is just as important as words, when it comes to
communication- in fact, 95% of communication is non-verbal. It is
also important because it stays the same across all different
languages and cultures, and makes a performance much more
interesting and informative. Movement can be described as the act
or an instance of moving; a change in place or position. In
theatre, it becomes especially essential, because when half of your
audience are sitting quite far away from you, they find it
difficult to know what you are saying from your speech alone, so
you have to communicate using body language.
