Unveiled: Interrogating the Use of Applied Drama in Multiple and Specific Sites
Daboo, Jerri
Research in Drama Education, v12 n1 p55-64 Feb 2007
This article examines a view of site through postcolonial feminism to suggest that multiple and contradictory discourses of culture, location, gender and context are all vital in an understanding of a specific site when working with a community. These views are applied to a project undertaken with a group of Asian women in Britain exploring issues surrounding self-harm, highlighting the importance of taking multiple positionings into account when using drama exercises. In addition, the author's own location as researcher/facilitator within the project is seen as "site-specific", questioning motivation and position within the project. Through the lens of postcolonial feminism, the idea of a fixed boundary of "site" is re-located to suggest a place where identity is continually in process within the local and the global.
