PACT is a resilient beast, surviving almost 40 years so far, with a constant influx of independent, inventive young people/artists who fuel its creative life and have this uncanny capacity to renew stuff, while testing out the precious spectrum of da cultural gatekeepers....At PACT, I have been supported by a whole cavalcade of generous professional artists, theatre workers, media writers, Board members and volunteers who are the lifeblood of the place...Particularly, my partnership with Company Manager, Lucy Evans was rewarding—as we egged each other on in a game of 'doggedness', sheer will and poor theatre invention.
The next team to work at this remarkable little cultural space is the accomplished performer/director duo Regina Heilmann and Chris Murphy. I would like to welcome them to PACT, as they hit the ground running. This move is a transition to full-time for Regina after years of contributing to PACT's various creative programs and a complete, absorbing new world for Chris after her work with Theatre Kantanka. It should be a blast!
