Performative Archaeology: Exploring the use of Drama in Archaeology Teaching and Practice
AbstractThis paper aims to explore the possible applications of drama and performance as research and teaching ‘tools’ in archaeological practice. A brief presentation about previous attempts to apply drama and performance in archaeology will be followed by a detailed analysis of how drama can be beneficial in the context of Archaeological teaching and practice. The theoretical discussion is later organized around a methodological framework. The discussion is supported by a presentation of the pilot application of the proposed methodology in Santorini island’s archaeological caves, and a brief summary of the application’s outcomes.
