Play has long been identified by psychologists, educators, and laypeople as one of the most important activities of early childhood. Increasingly researchers and practitioners are expanding the field of play beyond early childhood to include the role of performance as a play activity that continues throughout the lifespan. This book talk will highlight work that explores the connection between play and performance as collectively created cultural activities. The objective is to showcase the work of scholars and practitioners who explore the relationships between play, performance, development, and learning, and to discuss the ways broadening our understanding of play to include performance can enhance our practices with all people.
