A journal for performative teaching, learning, research Scenario Figure

SCENARIO is a bilingual (English–German), fully peer-reviewed, online journal in the area of performative teaching, learning and research. 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 journal is associated with SCENARIO Forum, an international network of researchers and practitioners and the SCENARIO Book Series.

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

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.
