The Heuristic Pedagogue: Navigating Myths and Truths in Pursuit of an Equitable Approach to Voice Training

Oram, Daron (2020) The Heuristic Pedagogue: Navigating Myths and Truths in Pursuit of an Equitable Approach to Voice Training. Theatre Dance and Performance Training, 11 (3). pp. 300-309. ISSN 1944-3927, 1944-3919

Abstract

This article reflects on a 5-year period of research into equitable approaches to actor training and voice. This reflection is performed as a conversation between two of the author’s voices; the pedagogue that has lived the experiences and the academic that has framed and written about those experiences. The discussion reflects on the challenges of voicing the lived experiences of the researcher within an academic frame. The author describes a heuristic process of research that has challenged them to move out of their comfort zone and has decentred their value system in response to the experiences of acting students with diverse intersectional identities. The author draws on principles of critical and radical pedagogy to propose an alternate framework for actor training with three interrelated strands; the Pedagogies of Method, Acculturation and Instruction.
