Abstract

This article builds on the current knowledge and approach of public practice drama therapy in community settings. We argue that a public practice of drama therapy might be informed by decolonizing methods, liberation psychology, third spaces, public practice art therapy and the Art Hive model. A case vignette of Drama Hives is presented to highlight our experimentations with drama therapy as a form of public practice that might offer a more holistic approach to care that is complementary to the movement for decolonization. The article concludes with a discussion on the futurity of public practice drama therapy and its research implications.

Resumen

Este artículo se basa en el conocimiento actual y en el enfoque de la práctica pública de la dramaterapia en entornos comunitarios. Argumentamos que una práctica pública de dramaterapia podría estar informada por métodos descolonizadores, la psicología de la liberación, los terceros espacios, la práctica pública de arteterapia y el modelo de colmenas de arte. Se presenta una viñeta de caso sobre una colmena de arte dramático para resaltar nuestras experimentaciones con la dramaterapia como una forma de práctica pública que podría ofrecer un enfoque más holístico para cuidar que es complementario al movimiento de descolonización. El artículo concluye con una discusión sobre el futuro de la práctica pública de la dramaterapia y sus implicaciones para la investigación.

Résumé

Cet article s’appuie sur les connaissances et l’approche actuelles de la drama thérapie en pratique publique en milieu communautaire. Nous soutenons qu’une pratique publique de la drama thérapie pourrait être informée par les méthodes de décolonisation, la psychologie de la libération, les tiers-espaces, la pratique publique de l’art thérapie et le modèle des Ruches d’Art. Une vignette de cas sur les Ruches Théâtrales est présentée pour mettre en lumière nos expériences avec la drama thérapie en tant que forme de pratique publique qui pourrait offrir une approche plus holistique des soins qui est complémentaire au mouvement de décolonisation. L’article se termine par une discussion sur l’avenir de la drama thérapie en pratique publique et ses implications sur la recherche.
