Creative Futures Update : Amanda Sullo
February 12, 2019
We love catching up with our Creative Futures alumni – next up is Amanda Sullo (2017). Amanda joined director Neil Gooding, playwright Hilary Bell and composer Greta Gertler-Gold as they developed The Red Tree stage adaptation of Shaun Tan’s award-winning picture book.
Since completing the Creative Futures program, Amanda guest starred in an Australian television series and worked on a number of national TVCs. She moved to Vancouver in September of this year, where she continues to study theatre and performance, and work as an actor.
“What I loved most about the Creative Futures program was working with such wonderful artists. I got an insight into the workings of a beautiful musical and had the opportunity to learn new skills. As well as shadowing Neil Gooding in his directing process and working with Kirsty Walker as an assistant stage manager, I also had the opportunity to learn puppetry skills and perform in the production. I’m really grateful for the skills I learnt in the program and for getting to work with inspiring creatives.”
