Improvisation in drama – a space of attunement and openness for the unexpected
2016 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
In data from the empirical study in my research project about how learning is done in and through drama, improvisation appear as an important component in drama education. Improvisation is about attunement, and about openness for the unexpected and the different. In this presentation I discuss the significance of improvisation for processes of becoming and creation of new knowledge. Interconnections are made between mentioned data, Biesta’s (2013) reasoning that education always involves a risk, and nomad philosophical thoughts about the not-yet-known.
