Term of Greek origin meaning action, suceso, happenings.

The word “act” Greek denotes the action being performed. Latin word corresponds “Actio”, the same word whose root “act” He happened to our vocabulary as actuaracto activity (Ver dramática).

In his book “El Psicodrama”, DRAMA Moreno defines as an extension of life and action, rather than as imitation. Say what, where imitation, the emphasis is not on imitating, but the opportunity to recapitulate unresolved problems, within a freer social environment, broader and more flexible”.


It is the discipline that studies the instruments and laws of dramatic representation and describing modes, the rationale and objectives of the task.

The dramatic is the set of theories that point to the knowledge of drama and dramatic representation. Dramatic techniques, en cambio, They are nothing more than the ways in which dramatic events promoting sought certain, dramatic techniques are based on the dramatic.

The first law of Drama and its essential principle is the law as if. According to this principle everything that happens in time and space, own dramatization, It is fiction simulation. All suit this situation, ie both actors and spectators.

The dramatic representation is an act of communication between the actor and the audience (or spectators); the actor, in the role, It tends to promote resonance in the auditorium. If this is not given no drama.

the R.D. It is a chore, which it aims to generate an act (or acts) comprehension. By offering the possibility of antagonistic confrontations allowed to make present in consciousness what had been unknown until then.

As the dramatic action a process that tends to totalizing integration, dramatic performances are acts of participation, whereby actors, soundboard and director (in the case of psicodrama) They are true performers dramatic act.

For a dramatic phenomenon takes place, necessarily must interleave (for achievement) all the instruments they are essential. Without this confluence you can never arise the fact is called “dramatic representation”.

The starting point for action (drama) is a conflict; if there is no conflict, there will never be dramatic action.


Expression used by Moreno as synonymous with therapeutic action (View performance).

It involves all those acts performed in the “como si” psychodrama with a clear and precise framing, and where consensus has been delimited space (el escenario) as the place where he will spend the dramatic action. Everything that happens in the same, will the limitations created by the concrete presence of those performing the action, but you will have total freedom granted by the timelessness of the imaginary.

For this, Moreno, he called dramatization to controlled and therapeutic action to happen is the psychodrama stage to operate on it.

The second stage of the psychodrama session and is exclusive patrimony of psychodrama work that operates mainly on links through action.

The dramatization leaves the purely psychological field to integrate the act. Dramatic action producing creative acts produces a change in which performs and its surroundings.

Psychodrama considers man as composed of a set of potential roles and current, product of the many creative acts that performed during his lifetime.

Dramatization by the work done in the three areas: corporal, imaginary and symbolic, can investigate, repair and recreate all those aspects that had been detained during the construction of the cultural atom (Ver átomo cultural).

In dramatizing a program that includes an ordered sequence of dramatic situations it is true:

1) Search undetermined role.

2) role given search.

3) Delineating the role conflict and its original.

4) Role reversal and understanding from the complementary roles.

5) creative assumption of the role itself.

The psychodrama program a dramatization must enclose these five periods.
