Creativity in Somebody Else's Shoes

Open access


The paper describes creativity in role context and how drama features and techniques can stimulate creative thinking. The first part of the article concerns the role of drama as a stimulator by encasing the participant in fiction. Aspects of development are also taken into account and the areas of differences in the use of drama at various stages of development, and thus at different stages of education are highlighted. The second part of the paper is devoted to drama techniques - heuristics based on taking on a role. The last part of the article describes how drama stimulates the process of solving problems and delineates its specificity.
