Abstract

This chapter describes how improvised participatory theatre can be used to encourage change in professional healthcare practice. It focuses on chronic pain, with a brief example from another healthcare project. The principal interest is to demonstrate how theatre processes, for the most carried out as participatory workshops, can be used to explore and influence healthcare practice. The chapter shows how health and illness narratives can be considered temporal, improvised, and performative phenomena that are narrated to life through actual practice. The idea is that narratives of practice emerge from the dynamic, moment-to-moment, and reflexive engagement with actual practice rather than as idealized or generalized accounts about practice. The emphasis is therefore on engendering narratives of practice as a narrating-between-people in a situation as opposed to considering narratives as after-the-fact accounts.
