Selected Readings in Drama and Theatre Education: The IDEA '95 Papers (2nd, Brisbane, Australia, July 1995). NADIE Research Monograph Series, 3.
Taylor, Philip, Ed.; Hoepper, Christine, Ed.
Documenting some of the myriad of voices assembled in Brisbane, Australia in July 1995 for the Second World Congress of the International Drama/Theatre and Education Association, the essays in this book address the central question of the Congress: What can be the role of drama/theatre and education in a rapidly changing world entering a new millennium? In Part 1, the writers share an interest in past and present contexts. Part 2 explores what theatre shares in common with other artistic forms. Part 3 examines the implications of dramatic artistry for the pedagogue. Part 4 unlocks the challenging world of criticism and aesthetics, and proposes frameworks through which educators can discuss and analyze dramatic artistry in education.
