Rewriting the Victim

This chapter introduces Phase Two of the DAR praxis: The “creative” phase. Here, I discuss the development of the musical’s characters, exploring the way the visceral, embodied, emotive aspects of dramatization contribute to “recovering”—that is, restoring or returning—the stories of community members that were uncovered during the field research phase. Moving beyond the site of the field research, I illustrate the process I undertook to build the characters of “Land of Smiles,” showing how, through their development, new questions about the research subject began to unfold.
