Why is it important?

As a new phenomenon in China, drama education is receiving increasing attention nationally and internationally. We bring the Chinese perspective of drama and theatre into a discussion around key concepts in western-oriented drama education, expanding the references to drama education and its relevant praxis in the 21st century. This study helps to extend the understanding of drama education in a global context and thus contributes to effective intercultural dialogue.
