CHANCE

MAGAZINE

Chance

is a photography magazine and serialized art book that looks at the world through the lens of theater

and design. A calm, noise-free place to engage with the aesthetics of design in detail,

Chance

integrates all

of the arts, material and non-material, into a single space where the poetry of human thought can expand our

desire for a more provocative and lifted engagement with design.

The team at

Chance

produces an original photo shoot of nearly every production they cover, and believe that

a more thorough glimpse into the world of design can change the way people think and write about the theater

and the artists who create for it. Started in 2012 by a group of designers, writers and artists,

Chance

is more

than a magazine. As a thoroughly stylized and high-quality publication,

Chance

is an immersive, image-rich,

serialized art-book on contemporary events in performance and design that comprehensively redefines

the relationship between theater and print.
