The Drama Science Lab designs and delivers SciArt experiences with Drama in mind. In our interdisciplinary experiences we blend art and science, and we use the body as a medium to engage learners.
Our mission is to inspire learners of all ages to start acting creatively and critically using their whole selves. In our approach, we use our bodies as a medium to bridge our inner environments with the ones around us and in this process, we incorporate art and science, not as two distinct terranes but as a new land of experimentation. We like to call our work, SciArt storytelling through Drama.
In-house. We come to your museum or gallery, we come where the participants are: in the backyard of a historic house, at their school or just on their screens.
The participants may be a group of kindergarteners, a group of docents or gallery visitors, it can be teachers. We work with any age group, any knowledge background, always adjusting the goals of our project in the participants' needs.
There is not only one way. We certainly move around a lot, we use our bodies and our minds to understand a concept and create our own narrative. One path is to start with an object of art as an inspiration and work around the object's big ideas utilizing embodied learning. Then we make connections with scientific topics and end up with a new personal narrative.
We challenge the participants to think again about the boundaries between art and science using their bodies as a medium to receive information, express and process thoughts and ultimately make connections that lead to knowledge.
We approach SciArt content as an educational path and we bring embodied learning (drama) on board as a pedagogical choice.
Because we do not learn in a linear way and in isolated disciplines and because we learn with and through our bodies.
