Psychodrama, 93 years young today!

Happy birthday, psychodrama! Today, April 1, is the birthday of this wondrous action method developed by Dr. J.L. Moreno and his wife Zerka Moreno. Dr. Moreno presented his first non-scripted drama 93 years ago at a theater in Vienna, Austria. The method continues to grow and expand throughout the United States and the world with today's psychodramatists continuing to innovate and create.

Here's a recent video interview with Valerie Simon, a psychodramatist in New York City who works with issues of trauma and addiction as well as performers who want to expand their creativity and spontaniety.
