The body politic: The relevance of an intersectional framework for therapeutic performance research in drama therapy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Bringing feminism into conversation with drama therapy, this article explores the relevance of an intersectional framework for therapeutic performance research. The author analyzes the relationship between intersectionality, health, and performance ethnography and then discusses a past performance from an intersectional lens to highlight the potential psychological, social, and political health benefits of performance research. The author concludes with a discussion of the implications of this analysis for a socially engaged, therapeutic, performance research practice in drama therapy.
