Platform Papers 26: Not Just an Audience: Young People Transforming our Theatre


This essay is about generation shifts and new creative forces in the Australian theatre. It's about how young people, children and the theatre artists who work with them are leading the demand for change. Young people get the current shift better than anyone else, say the authors: they're living it, activating it, and they're even making money out of it. When it comes to theatre, they want and deserve great work. What if the balance of power was reversed and young people were brought in on the act of transforming our theatre? The aim in this essay is to explore why and how.
