Abstract [en]

The paper focus on how the Swedish drama method Educational role play can work as a tool in analysis of data in a case-study. The analysis is part of a research project studying professional encounters when teachers, artists and drama pedagogues collaborates. Educational role play is similar to other forms of role plays such as forum theatre and psychodrama. The participants use their own experience and the play combines thought, emotion and action (Nilsson & Waldemarsson, 2010). The facilitator can use various techniques such as shadowing, sculpture, role change and teacher-in-role. Issues such as how the roles relate to each other, how they communicate and what options for action that becomes visible are investigated. In this way, Educational role play could make an interesting method for analysis since the thesis wants to describe the individuals, their driving forces and how they are affected when interacting with other professions. But – who’s truth are we dealing with?

The paper also reflects on how Educational role play relates to the definition of Ethnodrama, i.e. the practice of dramatizing the data by creating a script (Lawrence, 2015). Instead of a complete script, the facilitator writes a text that provides the participants with a short description of the situation and a brief instruction on the role. This includes social expectations and what is important for the role. The script will be improvised and is influenced by the participants, how they interact and what they use of their own experience.
