This paper argues that role-play as a simulated form of interaction - live and performed on video - is a creative method which has the potential to generate and support authentic dialogues in practice. In the paper we draw on experiences from 6 interdisciplinary workshops at a Danish hospital in which role-play of practice situations - both live and performed on video - formed the launching-pad for participants’ oral and written reflections. Our findings show that role-play has the potential to 1) develop professionals’ sensitivity to the significance of unexpected, embodied and emotional aspects of health care practices and 2) to display tensions between participants’ different perspectives on the same situation. We conclude that the dialogical process of raising reflexive awareness of tensions makes role-play a powerful creative method in health care education.
