Shaping Networked Theatre: Experience Architectures, Behaviours and Creative Pedagogies
Sutton, Paul
Research in Drama Education, v17 n4 p603-616 2012
Since 2006 the UK based applied theatre company C&T has been using its experience and expertise in mixing drama, learning and digital media to create a new online utility for shaping collaborative educational drama experiences. C&T describes this practice as "Networked Theatre". This article describes both the motivations for C&T's development of the C&T Network and this website. It sets out the functionality it offers students, schools and those working in more informal settings and explores the pedagogic and creative motivations that have shaped the partnerships the C&T Network facilitates. These include the interests of schools, theatre practitioners, disabled people and communities in the developing world. At the centre of this analysis will be the notion of "glocalisation" and its relevance to applied drama in an age of technologically driven globalisation. This article also looks at how C&T has adapted techniques and methods developed in the advertising and mainstream media to shape new pedagogic frameworks for the planning, delivery and evaluation of C&T's work across its network.
