5th European Dramatherapy Conference
May 8 – 9 2019
Prague, Czech Republic
“Costumes We Wear”
Does the dress make the man? Do people act the way they dress? If we are merely players (according to Shakespeare), do we wear costumes?
What do costumes say or narrate about us, about others? How much do they reflect or express identity, tradition, culture, character, origin, life, body, feelings, health or disease? What can they offer and what can they hide? Which metaphors do they bring and how can they inspire us? And regarding all of that, how can we use the costumes we wear literally or metaphorically in dramatherapy? And do we?
We invite all dramatherapists to give a two or three hour workshop or present a 30 minute paper or do a performance (up to 20 minutes) regarding the general topic of the next conference “Costumes we wear”.
The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2019.
