Research-Based Theatre with George Belliveau, Tetsuro Shigematsu and Christina Cook

Research-Based Theatre (RbT) is a qualitative, arts-based methodology that invites researchers, artists, educators, and research participants to collectively translate and transform research phenomena into theatre. This approach makes use of applied drama and theatre strategies, and at its core rests on two commitments: to honour and ethically explore the research context, and to engage and commit to the art form of theatre. This session explores key aspects of RbT and the tension amid these dual commitments. In this unique online presentation, Dr. George Belliveau, Dr. Tetsuro Shigematsu, and Christina Cook offer an illustration of the nature of Research-Based Theatre, and then speak to the methodology they used to create it.
