Um höfundinn (1986)

VIOLA SPOLIN (1906-1994), the originator of theater games, was introduced to the use of games, storytelling, folk dance, and dramatics as tools for stimulating creative expression in the 1920s while a student of Neva Boyd at Chicago's Hull House. During her years as a teacher and supervisor of creative dramatics there, she began to develop her nonverbal, non-psychological approach. Her books have been translated into Swedish, German, and Portuguese.
