Edwin Wong - When Life Gives You Risk, Make Risk Theatre

This episode of Big Blend Radio features essayist, author, and theatre expert Edwin Wong who discusses Risk Theatre. His first book "The Risk Theatre Model of Tragedy" (2019) upended our understanding of theatre by arguing that risk is the dramatic fulcrum of the action. It also launched a major international playwriting competition, now in its fourth year.

Now, in his second book "When Life Gives You Risk, Make Risk Theatre" (2022), Wong argues that chance is a powerful and misunderstood force that directs the action, both on and off the stage. More at https://risktheatre.com/
