I am sure that I have railed about this before, but am currently working on a CA$H grant for TBA. How is your proposal innovative and risky? Risky for whom? for what genre? What direction is risky without violating firecodes and getting arrested? How about doing a piece involving racism and pedophilia while killing goats on stage, but do it in different theater from the audience and have them watch it via live feed. Throw some filters on and PRESTO innovation, risky. Don’t forget the dancing dwarf who speaks backwards.
Innovation/risk/cutting edge – all tired terms.
Or maybe it just speaks to my lack of imagination, that I do not know what direction is innovative and risky.
