We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Senior Producer NSW, Vanessa Wright, who will lead the company’s NSW team and program. Vanessa comes to Performing Lines after close to five years as the Senior Producer of Darwin Festival.
“Vanessa joins the team of fine humans that make up Performing Lines and I’m thrilled to be working with her. Her extensive networks and national experience and high aspirations for NSW artists will propel them and the NSW sector to new levels of achievement.” says Performing Lines Executive Producer Marion Potts.
On joining the organisation Vanessa states: “I’m so excited to be coming on board with Performing Lines and to have the opportunity to work with such a talented and dynamic group of artists. Artists such as Andrea James, who’s spectacular Sunshine Super Girl is embarking on a mammoth national tour, Nigel Jamieson who is always making ambitious and surprising work, the incredible performance artist Emma Maye Gibson (Betty Grumble) who is currently touring Enemies of Grooviness Eat Shit, the iconic Paul Mac, Ghenoa Gela, Raghav Handa and Charmene Yap & Cass Mortimer Eipper. I can’t wait to support the work of these artists, artists who are exploring what is critical and urgent right now, telling important personal and collective stories.”
