Hillman advises that in Jungian psychology, there should be a movement from psychodynamics to psychodramatics. “And if we talk about psychodramatics . . . it implies we are in a different realm of a different god. We’re in the realm of Dionysus, who was the patron, the god, of the theatre. And then we have to use another language altogether for doing psychology. We have to imagine it as the realm of Dionysian life. Of life force, of passion, of tragedy and comedy, and not a clarification that you would get from an Apollonic or Athenian or another perspective of what goes on.”

Theatre is the oldest form of ritual. It is a form of creative expression that existed long before psychology as a way for humans to express the depth of lived experience.
— Ana Mozol
Theatre is a form of knowledge; it should and can be a means of transforming society. Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.”
— Augusto Boal
