This paper describes an experimental drama workshop offered to advanced level ESL students attending the University of Melbourne. The aims of the workshop are to increase awareness and control of body, breath and voice as well as to develop self-confidence, flexibility and spontaneity in participants. The principles used to guide the evolution of the teaching/learning process include 1) emphasis on the body as the source of breath, sound and perception; 2) emphasis on process rather than product: and 3) emphasis on linking past experience to present knowledge and situation. The content of the workshop consists of a variety of dramatic activities organized according to these principles. Results as recorded in videos, student diaries and drawings are encouraging.
