SpiegelworldSpiegelworld in New York

Andrew Dunn is the Creative Director of Spiegelworld and the Director of Absinthe which has its Australian premiere as part of the entertainment program accompanying this year's Australian Open. He has been involved with theatre since his university days, in the 1980s, where he first met Ross Mollison. The two were involved in the student theatre scene and spent their summer holidays creating their own children's pantomimes which they then toured around country Victoria, learning as they went about every aspect of performance. 
 
On graduation, in the late 1980s, the two formed their own company. Mollison Communications is now an international performing arts marketing consultancy with offices in New York, Sydney and Melbourne, and the Ross Mollison Group owns and operates the management agency BLA Management which represents many of Australia's leading creatives and artists.
 
Dunn spoke with Australian Stage's Jan Chandler on the eve of the opening of Spiegelworld and the Australian premiere of Absinthe.
