But don't worry, I'll be back this summer with new posts. In the meantime, have a look-see at these articles, websites, and other arts-related stuff I've enjoyed perusing lately:
- TRG blog: What It Takes to Change
- Learning from Innovation: Woolly Mammoth and Denver Center Theatre Company
- 13P: Who We Are, What We Made, and How We Did It
- Bezos Center for Innovation at MOHAI
- Accountability Through Experimentation
Now I leave you (temporarily) with a quote about avant-garde theatre that's been rolling around in my brain since I read it, from Taylor Mac in his recent interview with Bomb Magazine:
"We could do more of what the fashion industry does—they make avant-garde fashion something you want to see. You may not want to wear it, but you want to see it and experience it. So if theater could figure out a way to convince people that unconventional forms are exciting. “Oh you might get bored by this? That's exciting!” The idea that the play or the performance is supposed to solve everything for you in the moment is insidious...I don't think we change the world by somebody coming to see our play and saying, “My world is changed!” We change the world by whether or not we actually inspire them to do something afterwards."
