This article presents some findings from a research on the networks of collaboration among producing theatres located in Campania region, Italy, involved in stage co-productions. The study adopts basic social network analysis techniques in order to describe and analyze the characteristics of such a network, focusing on actors’ centralities in particular. The co-production network is considered as a form of affiliation (two-mode) network involving several organizations linked via co-memberships in the same co-productions. Furthermore, this research also aims at understanding the motivations of collaboration and the specific dynamics concerning work in the theatre industry. Therefore, results are discussed with regard to both the network analysis conducted and the findings emerging from interviews held with the members of the organizations under study.
