Special Interest Fields of Drama, Theatre and Education, the IDEA Dialogues contains articles written by a selection of experienced drama and theatre education practitioners from twelve countries presented at the Fourth World Congress of Drama/Theatre and Education held in Bergen, Norway, in July 2001.
Through the voices of the authors, readers are given access to intercultural dialogue that took place at the IDEA 2001 Special Interest Fields programme. Linked to the congress theme playing betwixt and between, the authors contribute to the discussion of the educational and seriously playful nature of drama and theatre in education.
This practical book will be a valuable resource for scholars, graduate and undergraduate students who are interested in viewpoints and reflections on the paradoxical nature of education through drama and theatre.
