As Performance Series

The NYU Program in Drama Therapy As Performance series is a laboratory in therapeutic theatre. Therapeutic theatre is a theatre whose intention and purpose is, primarily, to support a change process for its participants and, we hope, to some extent for its audience. As Performance places therapy on stage in front of a live audience as it investigates the intersections of therapy, research inquiry, and art-making. In our collaborations, clinical drama therapists participate as artists and artists explore a therapeutic process. As Performance seeks to explore the aesthetic, therapeutic, ethical, and research issues embedded in the process of making a theatre for change.
