Researching Performance For / By/ With Young People

Canadian Association for Theatre Research / Association Canadienne de la Recherche Théâtrale Conference

Child, baby, girl, boy, youth, juvenile, adolescent, young adult, young people are all age-bounded categories, laden with assumptions about who does and does not belong to them. They often suggest a state of becoming and borders to cross on the way to something else – usually adulthood. Those categories profoundly colour the way that artists produce work, institutions engage with young audiences and young performers, and influence the way we as scholars engage with our own research about and with young people within the context of theatre and performance studies.
