Abstract: In this piece I argue that the art-based method of research dissemination known as performed ethnography is characterized by multiple commitments which sometimes lie in competition or tension with each other and present ethical dilemmas for the researcher. Through a reflective analysis of two different ethnographic play scripts I’ve written from the same body of ethnographic data, I discuss what it means to honour multiple commitments to ethnography, drama, theatre, and critical discussion, and reflect upon what is gained and what is lost when one set of commitments is prioritized over another. In doing so, I explore how prioritizing one set of commitments over another impacts on some of the ethical commitments I have as a performed ethnographer to the participants in my research studies.
