SCENARIO, founded in 2007, is a fully peer-reviewed, online journal in the area of performative teaching, learning and research. It started off as a bilingual (English–German) journal, but has evolved into a trilingual journal and from 2023 onwards will also feature Italian language contributions. 


It is aimed at:

  • scholars
  • teachers
  • drama/theatre-in-education specialists and
  • practitioners in performative arts disciplines.

While the journal has a distinctly interdisciplinary orientation, encouraging contributions from different peformative arts disciplines and fields of practice, it focuses especially on the role of drama and theatre in the teaching and learning of foreign/second languages, including the literatures and cultures associated with these languages.

The first issue of SCENARIO appeared on March 15th, 2007. 

You can access articles from the current or previous issues or explore the site menu to find out more about the publication, including the Call for Papers.

In 2010, SCENARIO was awarded the European Language Label for its role in establishing innovative connections between the performative arts and foreign language education as well as striking new paths towards performative teaching and learning.
