This chapter presents the utilization of performance ethnography within a community-based participatory research (CBPR) framework and the combination of this qualitative approach with quantitative methods. Performance ethnography considers such forms of performance as photo, video, fiction, and narrative histories (as well as other traditional or innovative formats that may fall under creative analytic processes) as integral components of an ethnographic research process. Using such an approach often requires adaptation, integration, and flexibility on the part of the researcher and the research participants/coinvestigators. The author discusses the benefits and challenges of employing this approach within a CBPR framework. The chapter’s case study describes the incorporation of elements of performance ethnography (specifically video creation and documentary work) into a sexual health education program in secondary schools in Barbados.
