“Questions are being asked about the abrupt departure of respected arts administrator Helen Hristofski from Barking Gecko Theatre.
Nicole Beyer, Executive Director of Theatre Network Australia (TNA) said there was ‘deep concern’ about the way Hristofski had been dismissed from Barking Gecko.
‘We were also really disappointed at the way it was communicated to the wider industry,’ Beyer said.
‘The email from the Interim Chair did not recognise the excellent contribution that Helen had made to Barking Gecko and to the wider sector. Helen has championed other companies overseas, mentored emerging artists, and she has also been a part of TNA’s advisory group, strengthening the Theatre for Young Audiences and the Youth Arts sector,’ Beyer added.”
