    Abstract

    This article discusses the work of teacher/artists in the field of educational drama in an increasingly screen-mediated world. It suggests that digital forms such as computer interaction, mobile phones, videogames and TV influence young people's audience perceptions of drama. It draws a parallel betweenthe current situation in drama and Waiter Benjamin's analysis ofimage and performance in the 1930s. The relationship between avant-garde live performance and digital performance, especially interactive online role forms, is examined in terms of dramatic conventions that can be used by drama teachers to connect with their students' developing aesthetic awareness.
