This chapter advances a distinctive conceptual framework for defining legacy, seeing it as co-produced and co-performed in relational processes and dialogical encounters between scholars and community partners, facilitated by creative methodologies of knowledge co-production. Nicolini’s (2009) idea of ‘zooming in’ serves as a theoretical anchor to co-define legacy in a pluralistic way by using five distinct yet inter-related lenses that have informed our collaborative research (i.e. Theatre Studies, American Pragmatism, Critical Theory, Deleuzian Studies and Actor Network Theory). Legacy is thus defined as ‘the reproduction and transformation of a theatre tradition for new contexts such as research’, ‘changes inideas or practices (or both)’, ‘the empowerment of individuals and groups through the intersubjective development of understandings’,‘novelty and change through repetition’, and ‘the enrolment of new actants into a network’, respectively. This chapter illustrates how legacy was co-defined, co-performed and co-evaluated with various community partners and suggest how and why our conceptualisation of legacy may appeal beyond arts and humanities subjects.
