The Spiralling Journeys of the Been-Being-Becoming-Imag(e)ining Drama Facilitator.
Linds, Warren
A study-in-progress is examining the multiple and fluid identities in one person's "been-being-becoming-imagining" as a facilitator in transformative drama--for example, as researcher, facilitator, participant, observer, audience. The inquiry is a recursive and spiraling process. The goals and procedure arise through the research undertaken in conversation with experiences remembered and reconsidered. Narratives of the researcher's life as facilitator read through different forms and voices help draw his attention to his practice. By exploring these his identity can begin to be seen in the flux and flow of a spiral--no static "I" is written about nor is one "experience" focused on. Theater plays with forms of text and languages. Writing about the process of coming to know an identity-in-process as a drama facilitator is an exploration of how the researcher is becoming what he is continually becoming. The processes of self discovery can only happen if both facilitator and participants are engaged in it. (Contains 15 references.) (NKA)
