Abstract

The article discusses a study in La Carpio, San Jose, Costa Rica which examines how Dramatic Problem Solving (DPS), an interactive theatre based facilitation, was implemented structural conflict transformation at a community in interpersonal and intrapersonal level. It notes that the study incorporated an action research on a theatre based facilitation model and merged the fields of conflict resolution with performance studies. It reveals that a facilitated problem solving model is the way performance can make physical and real what is often unspoken or hidden.
