This chapter focuses our attention on the distinction between performance ethnography as a praxis of field research and what I have coined performed ethnography as the adaptation of field research and oral histories into staged performance projects that anticipate broader audiences than those associated with the original fieldwork or research. Why and how do we do adapt qualitative research to the stage? What are the theories, methods, and techniques to create it? By what describable and material means will the subjects and interlocutors themselves be affected by the performance? Can or should the performance contribute to a more active and involved citizenship?.
