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.
