Abstract

In this article of the Journal of Psychodrama and Sociometry we address the question of whether the online delivery modality of sociodrama, enforced by external conditions, lends itself to a discussion of Moreno’s methodology in the context of liminality. The concepts of liminality, creativity, collective creativity (CC) and creative resilience (CR) are discussed in relation to the value of sociodrama in mining spontaneous and devised liminal spaces within the greater liminal experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. Key Morenean concepts (somatisation, concretisation) are presented as spontaneous enhancers of group collaboration with references to their validation by neuroscientific research. The authors briefly introduce the concepts of ‘g’ factor and ‘UC-ego’ which are induced by the video communications services with references to their impact on collective creativity. The case study of the sociodrama network iSCAN with its capacity for collective creative resilience (CCR) demonstrates how sociodrama emerges as the strategic collective and creative response to external changes.
