This paper applies an action research lens to two approaches to large scale performance projects for young people: XL-D (2001) and XL-D Express (2003), both produced in Brisbane by Drama Queensland. By identifying the strengths and tensions of each project, a new model called ‘School- Initiated Youth Performance’ is proposed. This new model makes connections between youth performing arts and drama pedagogy, positioning young people and drama teachers as central agents in a creative and dialogic framework.
