It Feels Like Home: The Role of the Aesthetic Space in Participatory Work with Vulnerable Children
Hunka, Emily
Research in Drama Education, v20 n3 p293-297 2015
The author's entry into the Applied Theatre field coincided with "Research in Drama Education" ("RiDE's") inaugural issue in 1996 and, for the ensuing two decades, her practice has been primarily with "vulnerable" children. The purpose of this article is to interrogate a growing concern: that applied theatre's half-century of privileging Community Spaces for workshop and performance practice may not be appropriate for children who have experienced neurological trauma. The author does this, specifically, through the lens of her own practice with young people with mental health problems, "Whatever Makes You Happy" ("WMYH") (Greenwich & Lewisham Young People's Theatre (GLYPT) 2010-2014).
