Structuring Drama Work is both a deliciously practical and a tacitly theoretical handbook for teachers/leaders of drama. This is no small feat for a book that is only eighty-four pages in length. Neeland's book deftly examines the infinitely important notion of the structures and conventions used when teaching, facilitating and learning through theatre/drama; while it concurrently argues for the need for flexibility when designing for and working with students of theatre/drama. David Booth sums up the concept of theatre explored in this book when he describes the author's view of theatre as, "a meaning-making endeavour that interprets life and helps us to understand our world" (P.1). The strength of this book is that it does not get bogged down by such an ambiguous or esoteric definition; rather, it uses this definition to elucidate the potential power of drama in each of the lives of those who choose to suspend their disbeliefs (P.72) and participate in the collective endeavour of theatre. Most of the book is a compilation of current conventions applied in drama/theatre and used to enhance the educative process of expressing the world through symbolic form. Context-building, narrative, poetic and reflective conventions are explored in detail; they range from simple games to tableau to complex conventions like whole-group role-playing. Rather than focus on examples ad infinitum, Neeland focuses on the description, cultural connections and learning opportunities of each convention. This is where the power of the book is located; teachers, rather than just mimicking rote exercises, are given the reasons for the use of the convention and appropriate times to employ it.Read more ›
