Educational theatre refers to various educational and pedagogical uses of drama, theatre and performance. There are many forms of drama and theatre from different schools of thought, including drama in education (DIE), theatre in education (TIE), and applied theatre. The 2022 ATINER Education Conference, to be held in Athens and remotely (either online or prerecorded) May 16-19, invites abstract proposals for a stream on Educational Theatre that seeks to identify new directions in the field. Examples of new directions are applied theatre projects, audience response theory, quantum theatre and drama, and new media presentations. You may participate as presenter of one paper, or observer.
