"Drawing on pedagogical, aesthetic, and theoretical threads of applied theatre, this book presents practitioners and educators with innovative approaches to devising and performing digital stories with youth. Rapid globalization and advances in media and technology continue to change the ways that young people engage with and understand the world around them. Digital Storytelling, Applied Theatre, & Youth argues that theatre artists must re-imagine how and why they facilitate performance practices with youth. In doing so, it theorizes digital storytelling as a site of possibility for critical and relational practices, feminist performance pedagogies, and alliance building. Alrutz examines how participatory and mediated performance practices can help to channel the wisdom and experience of young people; build knowledge about self, others and society; and invite dialogue and deliberation with audiences. In doing so, she encourages readers to reconsider the ways that they engage with and value young people, and offers the first comprehensive examination of digital storytelling as an applied theatre practice for their generation"--
