• Museum Experience through Inquiry Drama

    1.   Theoretical framework: Drama in the Museum

    Drama as a creative pedagogic process and the museum as a meaningful informal learning environment refer – in their own ways – to humanity and culture, aiming at spiritual, emotional, embodied experiences and experiential learning. Drama in formal education as a holistic approach to knowledge, values, attitudes and skills leads participants to inquiry, innovation, imagination, self-identification and empathy (O’ Toole et al. 2002; Neelands et al. 2003).

In theatre and dramatic text, the performative and imaging discourse, which is appropriated by the audience, signifies the scenic transcription and formation of the play within socio-historical contexts.
