    Performative Archaeology

    Exploring the Use of Drama in Archaeology Teaching and Practice


    Trimmis, K & Kalogirou, K, 2018, ‘Performative Archaeology: Exploring the Use of Drama in Archaeology Teaching and Practice’. Scenario Journal, vol 12., pp. 30-45


    This 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.
