ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues with regard to pushing the boundaries of interpretation and the tensions this can bring for interpretive development. It examines how often the freedom of creativity and innovation is actively asked by commissioning organisations. It argues why artists are provided much greater creative freedom and often have much larger budgets with longer delivery programmes than interpreters.
