The psychodrama stage forms a basic structure of a theatre that defines a specified space where exploration of matters of daily living can be set out in a dramatic form. With a protagonist, a producer, auxiliaries, an audience and a stage, relevant human concerns can be revealed, shared and revitalised.

‘Theatre’ enables a sense of time and space, as well as people and place to be expanded and limitations transcended. In psychodrama we recognise this as surplus reality. The psychodrama theatre creates a situation of ‘acting in’ rather than ‘acting out’, of analysis, of the possibility of taking something new forward that can be tested out in life itself. There will be some emphasis on the human body, movement and sound and the benefits of a greater integration between thinking, feeling and action.
