Abstract [en]

Aim: To discuss theatre as an activity for forming identity for persons with ID in the postmodern society. The paper is based on two empirical research projects carried out in Sweden.

Method: A range of qualitative methods, i.e. interviews, participant observations and research circles.

Results: The result is somewhat ambiguous. It shows that cultural activities are a platform for redefining the social meaning of ID. But it also indicates a potential dilemma between the artistic aims and the organizational and political objectives with disability services.

Conclusions: Results highlight the delicate balance to be achieved in developing new practices (e.g. theatre) within normative environments, without making people with ID into pawns in an ideologically originated and politically decided game.
