The Theater of Tensions
Some time back writer/scholar Troy Camplin reached out to me via email with questions about how my small theatre company, Audacity Theatre Lab, operated. He just sent me a link to his academic paper entitled "The Theater of Tensions" posted in an open-access online journal called Studies in Emergent Order. He investigates how non-profits might navigate the tensions between the competing values of artistic expression, market forces, the community/public and philanthropic pressures.
While I don't agree with 100% of his conclusions in the article, it is wonderful food-for-thought. Besides myself, Tim Shane of the now-defunct Hub Theatre and Jac Adler of Theatre Three (Dallas' second oldest continually operating theatre) are also quoted.
Take a look HERE.
