  • Description: Playbuilding, Qualitative Research, and Arts-based Research Cast Ron: A book reviewer Joe: A book author Ron: (standing in the center of the stage, holding a book in one hand, and holding his head with his other hand) Joe, you really need to stop messing with my head. Okay, that's when collective creation became "Mirror Theatre" -sort of like the same turn qualitative researchers take when they see who and what they study can bring attention to marginalized groups or to folks who have been silenced in some manner. Sort of like presenting the review of a book about plays in the form of a play! (Ron and Joe look out to the audience with strange smiles on their faces) Joe: Research like art and art like research have evocative qualities, but we sometimes get so overly concerned with addressing the gaps in the literature and contributing knowledge and information that we miss the emotional, the ethical, the moral, and the performative provocation that sharing narratives can be, even when they come from humble beginnings such as data.
