Ethnodrama: An Anthology of Reality Theatre
Rowman Altamira, 2005 - Drama - 230 pages
Ethnodrama: An Anthology of Reality Theatre contains seven carefully-selected ethnodramas that best illustrate this emerging genre of arts-based research, a burgeoning but evident trend in the field of theatre production itself. In his introduction to ethnodrama and to the plays themselves, Saldaņa emphasizes how a credible, vivid, and persuasive rendering of a research participant's story as a theatrical performance creates insights for both researcher and audience not possible through conventional qualitative data analysis. With their focus on the personal, immediate and contextual, these plays about marginalized identities, abortion, street life and oppression manage a unique balance between theoretical research and everyday realism.

Page x - The proposition is that performed ethnography may provide more accessible and clearer public explanations of research than is frequently the case with traditional, written report texts (Mienczakowski, 1996). The public performance of ethnography in the argot of its informants may be argued to deacademize the report construction process. Significantly, ethnodrama also returns the ownership, and therefore the power, of the report to its informants as opposed to possessing it on behalf of the academy...
