Dialogical Renewal of Education through the Performing Arts: A Transdisciplinary Approach

Abstract : Talking about arts and education brings us to the encounter and dialogue between two disciplines that might seem dissimilar but are profoundly complementary. The vast scientific literature demonstrates the immense possibilities of the performing arts applied to the educational sphere. Performing arts foster strategies of social cohesion and empowerment, promote the learning of new codes of expression and dialogue, and prepare to face conflict situations in a peacefully and creatively. The dialogical paradigm, for its part, is articulated around the dialogue of all the agents involved in educational phenomena. As a result of its dialogical nature, this paradigm has great self-critical potential and is in a constant process of redefinition. For this reason, it dares to pose questions that manage to combine the loss of meaning of post-modernity and the fall of metanarratives with a constant effort to find new and changing orientations that offer provisional guidelines. This article, of an essayist nature, offers a vision from the paradigm of complexity to the art/education binomial, where the potential of the performing arts for the construction of the educational experience is considered from a dialogical approach.
