Bendall moves west

Chris Bendall, artistic director and co-founder of Theatre@Risk, today announced that he is pulling up sticks and moving to Perth to be AD of Fremantle's Deckhair Theatre. Creative producer Kirrilly Brentnall and associate director Victor Bizzotto, both of whom co-founded Theatre@Risk with Bendall in 2001, will also leave the organisation. Bendall takes up his new role in a couple of weeks.

TAR itself will be moving towards something like a production house, rather than producing new work itself. John Paxinos and John-Paul Fischbach will take over as co-executive producers of the company, aiming to support other new and emerging small to medium theatre companies and independent performing arts projects through the recently launched Incubator Project.
