Exploring the Adolescent's Creative Pathways: Mindfulness, Role Fluidity, Story, and the Dramatic Curriculum
McNees, David
NAMTA Journal, v40 n3 p55-74 Sum 2015
David McNees' deep foray into creativity theory and drama begins with mindfulness as a preparation for adolescent focus. This article discusses role incarnation, the correlation of the three-period lesson to Landy's role theory, the creation and re-creation of personal story and identity, archetypal heroes, and how the adaptability learned in theater builds both academic and creative success. The practice of role fluidity brings theater theory to ordinary, everyday life as theater can serve as an active support to emphasize the adolescents psychological characteristics in a Montessori context.
