Annex Decides to Leave CHAC. Finally.

posted by on July 15 at 17:01 PM

There has been speculation for weeks whether Annex Theatre was going to break off their partnership with Capitol Hill Arts Center.

Word came down this weekend: They are, and they’re moving into the old Northwest Actors Studio space.

So: Annex is in NWAS, People’s Republic of Komedy moved to Chop Suey, and Blacklight, the goth dance night, has disappeared in a poof of pancake makeup and bat fur. Or something.

Pure Cirkus was another CHAC partner that left in a huff. (Pure is most famous for hanging themselves from meat hooks.) From the column I linked to at the top of the post:

Other performers who’ve worked with CHAC, like Stephen Hando of Printers Devil Theatre and Xavier Frost of Pure Cirkus, say, respectively, that communication at CHAC “isn’t great” and “sucks.”

Weirdly, Pure Cirkus just sent us a press release hyping their new show at CHAC. So they’re back. But everybody else is leaving.

It’s all very confusing.

Awful Troll, this is old old really old news. We all know this. We've all been through why this was written. This is not news, and doesn't relate to any of the, what - five? - slog posts you've attached it to.

I'm a local photographer and I've been reading 'slog' daily for a few weeks now and just have to say that's it VERY COOL to see one of my photos appear after clicking on the 'meat hooks' link.
(I used to photograph regularly for PURE-cirkus not too long ago.)

Thanks for the tingles.. haa..

You guys need a photographer?
just let me know..

Blacklight is gone because Shawna and Monny decided to retire. Roxy and DJ Evan are going to keep Saturday nights going, however, as ClubV @ CHAC. They are off the 21st because of a theater event, but they should be back in the lower space on the 28th. Doors open at 9 pm.
