The authors describe the collaborative affiliation of the 23-year-old Baltimore Theatre Projed, a small, nonprofit theatre specializing in presenting the international avant garde, with the Department of Theatre at Towson State University. In three years, the two collaborators have launched a number of successful artistic and educational projects, and have learned a good deal about what it takes to make such an affiliation work. Arnoult and Baish provide an account of the climate and the connections that led to making the affiliation in the first place, and analyze its successes and failures to date.
