Darlinghurst Theatre Company (DTC) has appointed former board member and creative and cultural leader Suzanne Pereira as its new Executive Director. ‘DTC has always been my artistic home,’ said Pereira, whose association with the company began in 2014 and has continued throughout a career that has capitalised on a fusion of creative and business experience.
Pereira made her mainstage directorial debut with the Company’s production of Mary Ann Butler’s The Sound of Waiting in 2018, and started serving as a DTC Ambassador and Board member the same year. Thrilled to be leading the company alongside Artistic Director Amylia Harris, Pereira said, ‘Amylia and I share a vision that compels us to drive change in the sector, to champion artists and arts workers that want cultural safety to be at the forefront of any work they engage with. It’s why I, and so many others, feel at home when we walk through the doors of the Eternity Playhouse.’
