La maternité a souvent été abordée par des chercheurs, des psychologues ou des psychiatres, mais pas nécessairement d’une façon profonde et connectée sur l’intimité de l’expérience. Nous pensons qu’il n’y a pas beaucoup d’espace, de temps ou de lieux, pour aborder la transformation psychologique que génère ce changement d’identité chez la femme. La dramathérapie offre un médium thérapeutique unique pour donner une parole aux mères. Cette recherche basée sur l’art vise à explorer la maternité à travers une démarche heuristique et une performance théâtrale. Inspirée par différentes techniques de dramathérapie et de son expérience personnelle comme mère-étudiante, l’auteure présente son processus de recherche heuristique à travers la création d’une performance théâtrale et autobiographique.

Mots-clés : dramathérapie, maternité, performance, transformation.

The experience of motherhood has often been approached by researchers, psychologists or psychiatrists, but not necessarily in profound way connecting with women intimate experiences. We think that there is not much space, time or places to address the psychological transformation that this change of identity causes in women. Dramatherapy offers a unique therapeutic medium to give voice to mothers. This art-based research aims to explore motherhood through a heuristic approach and theatrical performance. Inspired by different drama-therapy techniques and her personal experience as a mother-student, the author presents her heuristic research process through the creation of a theater and autobiographical performance.
