(p.210) Chapter 13 Articulating Artist Narratives
Rewriting the Victim

Erin M. Kamler

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the narratives of the artists who participated in the “Land of Smiles’ production, and the transformation undergone by these artists as the “real” and “fictitious” worlds collided. Through inhabiting a space between characters and the actual people those characters are meant to symbolically represent, the artists experienced a state of “liminality” as well as its complementary state, “rupture,” in which one’s sense of certainty about their place in the world is disrupted. I discuss six key narratives that emerged among the “Land of Smiles” artists, showing how the spaces of liminality and rupture they evoke are foundational to the DAR praxis.

Keywords:   theater, performance, liminality, rupture, narrative, liberation psychology
