A Journey of Change with a Big Blue Whale: A Theatre-in-Education (TIE) Programme on Disability and Dilemmas in the Inclusive Classroom in Korea
Kim, Byoung-Joo
Research in Drama Education, v14 n1 p115-131 Feb 2009
The article chronicles and discusses "A Big Blue Whale's Dream," one of the first major theatre-in-education (TIE) projects commissioned by local and governmental cultural foundations in South Korea. Designed specifically for the non-disabled fifth and sixth graders of Inclusive Classes to enhance their awareness and perception towards the disabled, the programme addresses sensitive and complex realities in the Inclusive classroom in Korea. The article also examines the TIE programme's implication on three major areas: the impacts and possibilities of using TIE for disability awareness education; the confusion and expectation in embracing TIE as a new theatrical and educational vehicle in Korea; and the continuing struggle of creating and sustaining collaborative arts partnership.
