Vygotsky’s unfinished project of building a psychology in terms of drama remains a challenging task and requires collaborative efforts of theoretical and empirical research. This symposium’s aim is to initiate a dialogue on theoretical and empirical research to show possible ways of how they can inform and support each other in developing new theoretical tools and new empirical research projects. The theoretical framework which unifies these two areas of research is an interrelated system of concepts which includes (1) drama; (2) perezhivanie; (3) sociocultural genesis of the human mind and (4) dialectics.

Part 1 of the symposium is a dialogue of theoretical and methodological perspectives created around foundational theoretical concepts informing contemporary advances of key concepts of cultural-historical theory - drama, perezhivanie, creativity and dialectics of development.

Part 2 is a dialogue of empirical research informed by theoretical tools of analysis. There is a consensus that human development is not a linear, but a complex and contradictory process; however, there is still much work to do to explore drama and crisis as an essential moving force. This part of a symposium aims to present findings from three investigations in different social contexts, considering drama as a main analytical tool. Instead of a static perspective, we aim to examine social contexts in terms of movement and collisions, through a progressive viewpoint.
Keywords: cultural-historical theory, dialectics, childhood, development, drama, perezhivanie, crises, professional development, transition, assessment practices.
