Abstract: When exploring creative domains it is interesting to look at the myriad of possible mixing, morphing, amalgamation and intermingling of modes and student choices. These choices may be viewed as an open ended ‘narrative’ that flows between fixed points and can be documented through an ethnographic approach incorporating observations, collection of artifacts, video recordings and interviews. The significance of both the process (creation) and the final product (performance) is essential to this mapping process encompassing the impetus to creativity, working pathways, social interactions, agency and multiple stimuli. Narrative mapping checklists can incorporate tools for describing, analyzing, evaluating and contextualizing student work utilizing systems occurring in dance creative practice - these are time, weight, space and flow. The model also incorporates recent research into ‘Memory Fields’ (Burridge: 2004) and current CRPP project work on ‘Creativity: Representational Practices in Artistic Domains’. (Wright, S., Matthews. Tan, A.G., Burridge, S.: 2004). A narrative map will indicate strengths/ weaknesses in performing arts projects and can demonstrate the links between school, community, national and international networks. It can stimulate new strategies for pedagogy at all levels and assist in the structuring of courses, modules and individual lessons. This model may also be applicable to many other subject areas and will be of interest to researchers, students, teachers, policy makers and arts practitioners.
