Practical Performance Proposal (PPP) 25%
Students produce a proposal of 250 words with supporting visual materials and a report of 1,000–1,250 words.
Students at HL and SL must adopt a directorial perspective and write a rationale, outline and detailed description of a proposal for staging a performance. This proposal originates from one of the IBO prescribed performance stimuli. It should include written work, scenarios, images, storyboards and any other materials that convey the essence of the proposed performance, and the practical preparations necessary to realize it. Students should ensure that the proposal contains appropriate visual materials and does not depend solely on written descriptions. Students at HL also include a report on the wider theoretical context of the proposed performance, based on the research they have done.
Let’s look at a HL example
And the examiner’s comments:
Step one: select one of the three stimuli
Write up a brief 250 word proposal for what we could do to bring that stimuli to stage.
