Recently, At A Glance – the news publication from NYU Steinhardt – covered the processes and performance of the NYU Drama Therapy As Performance Series production of Rule Breaking.

Robert J. Landy, program director of the Drama Therapy Program at NYU, discusses the benefice of the As Performance Series.”The As Performance series asks us:  How does performance transform the therapeutic encounter? How can performance be leveraged as an effective therapeutic tool?”

Co-Principal Investigator, Collaborator, and NYU Faculty Maria Hodermarska speaks on the process of Rule Breaking. “We’re breaking the rules around what a play can be. We’re breaking rules around what we can discuss with each other when we are on the stage, like identity or diagnoses, and the very human embarrassment, frustration and fumbling love, we feel for each other. And we’re celebrating with humor the desire to rebel and break rules.”
