No longer will great theatrical performances only live within a narrow timeframe in major metropolitan centres, now they can be recorded and distributed to a wider population in rural and regional Australia.
A new initiative, Australian National Theatre Live, has been established to screen Australian theatre in cinemas around the country. Following the success of Britain’s National Theatre Live, the venture, run by RealPlayMedia’s Grant Dodwell, Raj Sidhu and Peter Hiscock, has been almost four years in the making as the trio have worked to convince “stakeholders” of its sustainability, including finalising a deal with the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance’s Actor’s Equity branch.
