The collaborative cultivation of a stage character is explored through the interactional dynamics in a theatre production at an upper secondary school in Sweden. With a departure in sociocultural and dialogical approaches to meaning making, learning and creativity this study attends to how cultural resources are used and how social situations are managed in theatre rehearsals. By using the analytical tools of framing and footing in an ample set of videos I conclude how the participants are able to manage extraordinary complexity of framings, in ways productive for the situated collaborative learning of the character of the character. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd
