Points and Practices
Ahmed, Syed Jamil; Heddon, Dee; Mackey, Sally
Research in Drama Education, v12 n2 p207-222 Jun 2007
This collection of three articles represents the "Points and Practices" section of this month's issue of "Research in Drama Education." The first article, "'Fitting the Bill' for 'Helping Them.' A Response to 'Integrated Popular Theatre Approach in Africa' and 'Commissioned Theatre Projects on Human Rights in Pakistan,'" by Syed Jamil Ahmed, discusses Zimbabwe's Amakhosi Theatre, a renowned company that has been touring the world since 1990. The theatre participants have produced several plays on HIV/AIDS to inform local communities of the danger of the growing epidemic. The second article, "Ac/counting the I's," by Dee Heddon, discusses the use of the word "I" in autobiographical inscriptions, particularly in applied drama practice. The final article, "A Point and a Pilot on Practice: Recording Performance of Place Research," by Sally Mackey rehearses and repositions arguments about the verifiability of practical research in performance-related disciplines. Mackey's article also serves as an accompaniment to a DVD-ROM entitled "Performing Place" that is included in the print edition of this issue. (Contains 4 endnotes.)
