~ FREEDOM SPICE IN THE NEW MASH-UP WORLD~: The Empty Spaces...:
And yes, I know why it can't be done. I've been told many times why. An equity technician has to be there and has to be paid whenever a guest theatre uses these spaces... yah di yah di yah... there are multiple other reasons, but the bottom line is : there are tons of well outfitted, unused space in the large theatre institutions that could be lent or rented for cheap to young theatre makers ; which in turn might bring together the dying and the upcoming theatre goer, if only , somebody, someone, anyone, might be willing to break some rules, restructure some things and not care about conforming or complying with the capitalist/donor model of doing things.
When I was at the Mike Daisey show, the thing I was praying and wishing the hardest for, was that, somebody, someone, anyone from the larger theatres was in the audience.
You don't have to wait for something to die in order to reinvent it. It's fear and compliance with the machine that is death. Always.
