dc.description.abstract This research sought to investigate new aesthetic approaches in the creation of feminist Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA), specifically for early adolescent girls, through two collaborative workshop processes designed to be ethical and respectful of the participants' contribution. The parallels between the research into a new aesthetic for TYA and current trends in Applied Theatre practice led the researcher to shift focus into self-study and a critique of practice to enhance self-reflexive praxis, which strives to be ethical. Issues surrounding representation took precedence in an attempt to speak to the lived experiences of the early adolescent South African girl. The difficulties in the process resulted in an inequitable relationship between the researcher and the participants who were unable to meet the criteria for successful theatre making without the researcher's facilitation. en_ZA
