Playbuilding as Qualitative Research: A Participatory Arts-Based Approach

Author: Joe Norris
Date Published:  October 2009

Resource Types: Resource Books, Resource Library

"This book is for both art-based researchers and research-informed artists, exploring the theatrical genre known as Collective Creation, or Playbuilding. Performers generate data around chosen topics ― from addiction and sexuality to qualitative research ― by compiling scenes from their disparate voices. Audience members become involved in the investigation, and the performed scenes do not end the conversation but challenge and extend it. Through discussion and audience participation, the process examines how knowledge is defined and how data is mediated."
