A NEW BIBLIODRAMA LEARNING PATH
Hello all the Bibliodrama Group Members!
I just want to let you know that I have recently uploaded the description of the Bibliodrama workshop (which was part of our conference in Florence) on the ARTES platform. It can be viewed at: http://artescommunity.eu/bibliodrama-and-intercultural-awareness/
Please have a look and share your thoughts and comments.
Thank you for this workshop! I think I’m gonna talk about it to a school! Do you think this is suitable for children?
Hi Juan, I am afraid that it might be too strong experience for children, if one decides to follow the whole workshop scenario as we did it in Florence. I mean especially the act of destroying works created by participants. However, it should be possible and effective to use other techniques/exercises to explore the subject of diversity: warm-up game with the sheet of paper; reading and marking chosen words/sentences; creating the image/representation of the message hidden in the text and discussing the whole process.
Another question concerns the choice of the text. I believe that this particular parable is very rich in meanings but there are many other options, too. You might find useful our exchange with Andrzej Saramowicz in the Bibliodrama group who proposes to work with the texts by Hodja Nasreddin. They are really great!
Anyway, please let us know if you try to use Bibliodrama in your intercultural activities. In Grodzki Theatre we used it mostly in working with adults but a few “experiments” with high school pupils were also done (and proved to be successful!)
