Role play as a democratic process

 

 
DeathgameThey chase each other. Dash quickly across the road like aliens on the lookout.
Creep along the walls like fleeting shadows. Mysterious, disguised and carefully planned. The scene is Stockholm in Sweden. The roles are being played out by young people.
Together they are taking part in a live role play, based on reality – Deathgame.

The game has been analysed in a research project on “Democratic learning processes in adult education organisations” by Carin Falkner, Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Science.
