The teaching-learning techniques of BIPA (Bahasa Indonesia untuk Penutur Asing - Indonesian for Speakers of Other Languages) for language skills are oftentimes separated from that of ‘cultural’ skills. Even worse, BIPA teachers tend to devote only a little attention to students’ cultural sensitivity. Dramatic Theatre, when used appropriately, offers engaging techniques for the teaching-learning of both language and cultural skills. Dramatic theatre’s ‘production process’ is very useful in developing linguistic and cultural sensitivities to the students. The teaching-learning of BIPA using the Dramatic Theatre production process at Petra Christian University, Surabaya, Indonesia has shown that it is a promising teachnique to be developed and implemented. The students’ involvement in the process from the preparations, rehearsals, and finally performance gives them a chance to enjoy and, especially, learn the Indonesian linguistic as well as cultural nuances more or less authentically. This paper is an evaluation of BIPA through dramatic theatre at PCU. It will show how students are involved in the production process, learn Bahasa Indonesia, and grasp Indonesian culture both from the play they perform and the process of production itself. It finally gives evaluation and recomendation for further use of dramatic theatre for BIPA at PCU.
Key words: Teaching-learning technique / dramatic theatre / performance / language / culture
