The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
Theatre professor David Kaye talks creative process in art and life in this year’s Lindberg Lecture.
You don’t have to be an artist to know the fear of taking creative leaps. Likely we’ve all had moments when we had to decide between the safe choice and the aspirational choice, risking the known for an unknown that might be fantastic but could just as easily be uncomfortable, scary or even a total failure.
David Kaye, professor of theatre, has had a lifetime of creative leaps that he calls the history of bad ideas. He shared some of them in this year’s Lindberg Lecture, titled “This Was a Really Bad Idea: Life Vs. Theatre and the Creative Abyss,” delivered last month at UNH.
