festival

"In earlier times, festivals like Lincoln Center's existed to display what artists had created in the normal course of business. Theater and dance troupes would come from all over, bringing the same works they played for their audiences at home. Nowadays, festivals are everywhere, a globalized phenomenon like mass marketing, and pieces that have no effective existence in their home countries are manufactured for the sole purpose of migrating from festival to festival."(Village Voice | Theater |Bits of Pieces Crossbreeding cultures is fine, but what if nothing grows out of it? | Michael Feingold)
