Raising Curtains on Education: Drama as a Site for Critical Pedagogy

Synopsis

Believing that transformation is possible and that it must come from within, Doyle illustrates the vital connection between drama and critical pedagogy. Presuming that a practice informed by the theory of critical pedagogy is essential to achieve an emancipatory education, he shows how well drama and aesthetic education can encourage a pedagogy that is critical. When not robbed of creativity through the reproductive policies of the dominant cultural agencies, the reality of each individual informs the way in which art and drama are experienced and thereby encourages social change.
