Abstract

How does performance shape interpretation?

What do performers gain participating in a long running ethnodramatic investigation?

Ethnodrama is more than a means to communicate fieldwork; ethnodrama may be practiced as a form of inquiry (Feldman, 2005; Saldaña, 2011; Vanover, 2016, Ahead of print). Script writing, rehearsal, performance, and analysis of data collected during those events provide multiple opportunities to engage in interpretation and analysis. Inquiry becomes a public and living practice (Fabian, 1990; Gouzouasis, 2006; Leavy, 2015; Prendergast, 2011; Springgay, Irwin, & Kind, 2005).

This symposium shares learnings gained through participation in Goodbye to All That! (Goodbye!) an ethnodramatic inquiry developed from a script built from verbatim transcriptions of interviews conducted with an accomplished Chicago Public School teacher. Each performance is staged by a changing group of actors and generates unique performance records.

The symposium at ISQM provides audience members the opportunity to engage with Goodbye! as an inquiry and example of core theory in arts-based research practice (e. g. Barone, 2008; Beck, Belliveau, Lea, & Wager, 2011; Conquergood, 2002; Leavy, 2015). The session begins with a 30 minute version of Goodbye!, with the University of South Florida’s Vonzell Agosto, Tarah Nkruma and Omar J. Salaam playing the leads and Andrew Babson performing the score. The session then shifts into small group discussion and concludes with a response by Cynthia Langtiw and a general discussion that discuss the session's guiding research questions.

Presentation Type and Comments

90 minute workshop.

If possible we would like the room to be free after the session for us to break down the session and take photos.
