ITYARN Network is a collaboration project between ASSITEJ international and several universities to further research on theatre for young audiences (TYA). ITYARN is coordinated by Agder University (Norway), the University of Hildesheim (Germany), Arizona State University (USA) and the College of Letters and Science (University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA).
This network aims to advance critical inquiry in the field of Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) through the exchange and discussion of papers from scholars in and outside of the field of TYA. We will attempt to bridge the gap between theatre for young people and theatre for adults by discussing the field of TYA from historiographical and theoretical perspectives that have not been applied to the field before, offering multiple, intersecting narratives on the slippery relationship between theatre, young people, and the shifting material circumstances (social, cultural, economic, ideological and political) under which this theatre is generated and perceived.
