Geelong After Dark

A night of discovery, of short, sharp and edgy art – as ordinary spaces by day transform at night into something exciting, unexpected – and very much alive.
Last year’s Geelong After Dark attracted a 6,000 strong audience to the city centre for a night of free pop-up performances, mini-exhibitions and light installations.
Geelong After Dark 2015 is programmed to be even bigger and brighter with the most creative of contributions by our most innovative local artists.
For one night only the city will come alive and surprise at every turn with an alpaca procession, musical acts, virtual Antarctica, dance pop-ups, Afghan tea house, opera, travelling suitcases of art, tuba quartet, soundscapes, giant puppets, silent disco, underground performances, shadow puppets, Little Shop of Horris interactive art, light projections, pop up choirs, rooftop cinema, drumming and theatre.
Geelong Mayor Darryn Lyons is not only proud and passionate about Geelong After Dark, but this year will also be part of two performances – the alpaca procession and silent disco.
“I absolutely love what Geelong After Dark brings to the heart of Geelong. Creative, colourful and spontaneous performances – it’s art for everyone and is a great night out. There are more than 80 performances to discover. A great way to make an ordinary Friday night truly extraordinary – and it’s all free,” said the Mayor.
“Bring friends, bring family and explore central Geelong as our streets, laneways and cafes come alive with light, music, people and art!”
When and Where: Various locations around Geelong, May 8 @ 6-10pm
