Abstract: The article is an account of the second year of a three-year research project titled, Drama Education, Youth, and Social Cohesion: (re)constructing identities in urban contexts, examining the experiences of youth in urban drama classrooms, and the dynamic forces of inclusion and exclusion experienced there. The researchers contemplate findings based on a methodological shift, in which they dramatically engage the students in an exploration of their pressing concerns about the school administration's new security policies. The students’ issues provide clear examples of just how far the neoliberal agenda in schools has gone and the unambiguous ways in which democracy is under attack. Implications of this experimentation are drawn for educators and researchers about the potential of attuning to students' ‘watching’ as a developing pedagogy, a form of critical engagement of the imagination, and a space for creative resistance against the school's institutional gaze.
