Arts Annex Decides to Leave CHAC. Finally.

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.
