8 Douglas and Carless When McLeod (1997) discusses achieving “alignment,” he draws attention to the fact that our experiences do not always match the story of which we are a part. He suggests that when a “satisfactory-enough alignment” can be created, we will likely experience psychological health and adaptive development. At other times, it may be impossible for an individual to create a personal story that links her experiences with the narrative of which she is a part; in these cases, the gulf between culture and experience is simply too wide.

This layering of languages and signs cogently engages our experience of the real world and posits an ethnodrama not only as a vehicle of disseminating data in an entertaining way but also as a means by which aspects of human experience, authenticated by data produced by social scientists in narrative form, can be realized in order to reveal new insight through the communication of meaning and emotional moment in live theater. Representing Applied Research Experiences Through Performance 29 Sport-Based Ethnodrama Examples The following examples, derived from our own endeavors to produce ethnographic drama based in sport cultures, illustrate how nonverbal elements play their part.

Our intention is to address this question both from the ethnodramatist’s (Gilbourne & Triggs) and from a theater director’s (David Llewellyn’s) stance. In this essay, we initially seek to identify the recently established territory that ethnodrama has claimed in the field of reality theater and applied theater practice, then consider the function and potential of ethnodrama in the landscape of qualitative research in sport social sciences. We undertake this task with reference both to the dramatic canon of documentary-based plays and to a range of recently written and produced ethnodramas representing sport narratives (Gilbourne, Triggs, & Merkin, 2006; Gilbourne & Llewellyn, 2008).
