Abstract

This work tells innovative experiences of implementation of psychodrama and spontaneous theatre for the community environment in Cuba. The three experiences were developed in “El Canal”, an alternative space for the promotion of Psychodrama and Spontaneous Theatre/Playback. The modalities implemented were: public psychodrama as a device to enhance citizen participation;psychodrama for the construction and reconstruction of historical memory; and the spontaneous community theatre to promote an intergenerational meeting, with the direction of Julia Motta; Úrsula Hauser; Ana Ara and Bea Huber, respectively. The modalities used are based and described, highlighting their potential to be used for different purposes within some of the essential tasks that work in community settings demands.
