Known risk factors that have shown to normalisesexual harassment in the theatre industry have been investigated in this study, using the experiences offormer Female theatre students as the primary case study. The following risk factors are discussed;celebration of art as the highest value, eroticism in the work process, competition for work, charismaticleadership and culture of silence. The main theoretical frameworks applied to the study are criticalperspectives on power and sex/gender; theoretical ideas from Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, LauraMulvey and Iris Marion Young are brought together in order to frame how power relations can begendered and systematised. Furthermore, the theoretical framework uses sociological perspectives onhow organisational culture is structured, using Edgar Scheins model of The Three Concepts of Cultureto demonstrate this. The study is based on six qualitative, semi-structured, in-depth interviews. Theanalysis uses an inductive approach where theoretical perspectives and empirical material is combined.The conclusion of this study argues that the aforementioned risk factors are pervasive within theorganisational culture of the Swedish Theatre Academy, where they reproduce each other, and thereforeuphold gendered power relations which undermines and subordinates Female students.
