Meet three directors from the Darlinghurst Theatre Company’s 2020 season
All three directors came to their directorial careers from different disciplines of the theatre, and each brings their individual talents to next year’s season of productions at the Eternity Theatre.
Acclaimed choreographer Amy Campbell not only directs the landmark musical, A Chorus Line, but also rethinks the choreography to reflect the dance styles and the struggles of an artist in the 21st century.
Season runs 13 March – 19 April. Book here.
Shaun Rennie transitioned seamlessly from acting to directing and now he’s preparing the Australian premier of Amelie (the musical), a mesmerising blend of musical theatre, puppetry and illusion.
Season runs 2 July – 9 August. Book here.
Having forged his theatrical career as an award winning lighting designer, Alexander Berlage is well placed to direct this supernatural thriller, Let the Right One In. Expect to see vampires and plenty of blood.
Season runs 11 September – 11 October. Book here.
Also Anthony talks to Justin Paton who is head curator of international art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
They chat about Justin’s move in 2014 from New Zealand’s Christchurch Art Gallery to the AGNSW, the long awaited new extension to the gallery – Sydney Modern, and trends in contemporary art.
They take a closer look at “Quilty”: a survey exhibition of Australian artist Ben Quilty’s work that is currently on display at the gallery. (Ends 2 February 2020).
