Site B – online seminars exploring key components of ‘being’ in role in process drama

Engaging experientially with the fictional world is central to process drama. The nature of this engagement and the characteristics of the fiction offer a number of important theoretical and practical questions to be discussed by drama practitioners. This series of ninety-minute online seminars discusses some of the key concepts through the analysis of moments of practice in five events led by an international group of experts.
