Amendment

4 Dec

I want to amend my last rant, which came at the end of a hard day. There are many amazing artists striving to do complex, interesting work in the US. They’re in collectives and garages and places like the Orchard Project and scrappy groups that rent rooms by the hour. They’re at HERE and PS122 in NY and at many other places all over the country. It’s just that there’s an inverse relationship at present between $ level of production and risk in the work.

My recurring image for the institutional not-for-profit theatre in the US in these rough economic times is that of a very hungry dinosaur deciding to eat its own eggs.
