A Loud Silence: Working with Research-Based Theatre and A/R/Tography
Lea, Graham W.; Belliveau, George; Wager, Amanda; Beck, Jaime L.
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v12 n16 Nov 2011
Arts-based approaches to research have emerged as an integral component of current scholarship in the social sciences, education, health research, and humanities. Integrating arts-based methods and methodologies with research generates possibilities for fresh approaches for creating, translating, and exchanging knowledge (Barone & Eisner, 1997; Barone, 2000; 2008; 2008; Knowles & Cole, 2008). This article explores two such methodologies, a/r/tography and research-based theatre, by closely examining the development of the theatre-based piece "Drama as an Additional Language: Creating Community, Confidence, and Comfort" (Beck, Belliveau, Lea, & Wager, 2009). Using the six a/r/tographic renderings (contiguity, living inquiry, metaphor and metonymy, openings, reverberations, and excess), the authors investigate the development of "Drama as an Additional Language" as an example of how research-based theatre and a/r/tography may be integrated. (Contains 2 notes and 2 figures.)
