Theatre offers an opportunity for communities to think with and through fiction. We come together to hear and tell stories because it is moving, both in the literal and the figurative sense: it changes us. Theories from cognitive science of embodied cognition make clear that making sense of theatre is a full-bodied affair. In this essay, I argue that we can see moments when theatre invited its audience to think in new ways by shifting theatrical conventions. I explore how a contemporary production of Hamlet, Pan Pan’s production of “The Rehearsal: Playing the Dane”, brings its audience to question the stability of the self and text by altering the conventions around casting and representation. This is theatre that I may not understand in a traditional way, but this gives me a way to understand a new way of thinking about the world around me. It is theatre I can use.

Social perspective taking (SPT) and the coordination of subjective and alternative perspectives are paramount to social behavior. Scholars tend to agree that approaches to conceptualizing SPT relate to interpersonal understanding and to language skills. The aim of this study was to determine whether interrelations exist between children’s SPT and experience in reading because reading requires the reader to take various perspectives. Additionally, receptive vocabulary and reading fluency of 2,105 children were assessed and they completed a questionnaire at the beginning, in the middle, and at the end of fifth grade. Results indicated that the students’ SPT was determined by gender and reading experience with books and newspapers. We conclude that this reading experience affects students’ SPT levels positively; that finding can contribute to the development of school-based activities to enhance SPT levels.

The study discusses the ability to develop metacognitive skills through experiences of contact with cinematic works that produce complex, multifaceted, emotional impacts understood by the body before they are understood by the mind. We investigate the relationship between music and images by identifying morphological profiles and the multimodal value of hybridized, dynamic and mutually changing phenomena [Zambaldi, 2016] in which we see ourselves [Gallese, Guerra, 2015]. We must emphasize that only by elaborating propositions, reordering reality according to grammatical codes and syntactic patterns, it is possible to circumscribe and amplify the power of communication and non-verbal relationships: the power of embodied cognition must not stop but foster the power of words
