TitleThe 'third thing': Rancière, process drama and experimental performance

Abstract

In this paper I attempt to find links between my own interest in experimental theatre and process drama. Through the theory of Jacques Rancière, particularly The Ignorant Schoolmaster, I suggest that both share a space for mutual reflection between spectator and performer, and between teacher and student. I suggest that this space is possible through the artificial space of the ‘third thing’ of art, where a hierarchical pedagogy can give way to a more processual model of learning and understanding.
