Abstract [en]

Based on an interview study of two drama pedagogues in Sweden who work in professional theatres, the paper describes their background, mission and role. In the interviews a multifaceted role emerges. The drama pedagogues mission is primarily externally educational and communicative/coordinating but also internally educational and coaching. By using theories by Lave & Wenger (1998) and Janik (1996) it doesn´t come clear that the drama pedagogue’s are part of a community of practice of their own. They are building bridges or works as bridges between art and school but do not seem to have a collective context as drama pedagogues. Their basic education may be relevant to what community of practice they feel most at home in; school culture, artistic culture or drama culture. Through auto-ethnographic-inspired poems the drama pedagogues' personality and role are interpreted. The poems imply that the two drama pedagogues are differently secure in their roles within the artistic sphere. It is also possible to interpret the drama pedagogue’s role in reflecting the theme of the artistic work.
