thoughts about valuing independent theatre #1

Independent theatre is usually cheap, in places that are easy to get to, and casual. Everyone is welcomed.  Nobody needs to ask what they should wear. Because of this, independent theatre is lower stakes. People have only spent $15 on a ticket and maybe 90 minutes of their time and so if they don’t like it they feel okay about it. Lower stakes means artists are able to try things that might not work. And only then will we be able to innovate.

I am a theatre maker in Adelaide, South Australia. I am queer and a lady and my work reflects that, as well as the fact that I am an aesthete with a belief that the personal is political, and the political is personal to me.
