WHY I SUPPORT THIS RESEARCH PROJECT

So many sectors have been transformed in the last decade by new business models and technical innovations. For the performing arts sector, and specifically in how supply and demand find each other within it, change is overdue.

To keep the independent maker scene fresh and vibrant, it is crucial that independent makers are visible and findable, enabling venues to enrich their programming with their art and creativity, and thus offering these performances to the audience. The BAU Agency Research Project maps the needs of the sector on both ends, and provides a blueprint on how to introduce such a new model for the sector.

It was a pleasure teaming up with the research team as a coach – I hope a new, improved way of working will find its way to the scene soon. With this research, at least now there is a great starting point.

WHY I SUPPORT THIS RESEARCH PROJECT

The research project investigates an interesting and innovative idea to set up an interactive agency for the independent dance and performers scene, a sector that is largely under the radar. It maps out, without pre-selection, which productions and which makers are currently active. And it gives venues, programmers and other customers the opportunity to get a good overview of a wealth of data that is always kept up to date.

It brings artist and sellers together in a transparent way. For me as a supervisor and producer and impresario of the “old” regime an interesting journey to support this search for new interactive models.
