Laura Brueckner is curating a salon series on the Theatre Bay Area blog. First up, Jessica Holt from the Bay One Acts Festival:
We talk about value a lot in the new work field. We say: “New work is valuable, it’s vital to the future of the theater.” Clearly, it’s important for us, as theatre artists that make our living in the new work field to advocate for its importance and significance. And yet, I am not convinced new work is inherently valuable just because it’s new.
Be sure to read the responses from Jim Kleinmann (PlayGround and the Best of PlayGround festival), Amy Mueller (Playwrights Foundation and the Bay Area Playwrights Festival) and M. Graham Smith (Global Age Project at the Aurora Theatre). And then tune in for the rest of the series.
