Highlighting the drama in psychodrama

Drama means to act, to accomplish, to be ready to do. Drama is therefore concerned with combining the act with movement, with exploration and relationships. Psychodrama is one form of drama that aims to enliven the psyche. Psychodrama has at its core a deep interest in the movement of the human body – what it teaches us and how it can guide us in an exploration of the human psyche.

In this workshop we will give our attention to the dramatic, we will highlight ourselves as dramatists, artists and theatre lovers and weave this together with what the psyche unfolds to us moment by moment.

Participants can expect to strengthen their ability to produce a dramatic enactment and to become more comfortable with the expressiveness of the unique and spirited psyche.


‘The psychodramatic method is based on the idea of highly motivated human beings acting
on the aspirations and deepest concerns of the society or subculture or small group in which they live.’
