From 11-13 May, Geelong Arts Centre is taking over Furphy Hall at Little Creatures Brewery to present the interactive Pub Trivia show with a modern dance twist in 'I Liked It, BUT…'
From the mind of proud Wiradjuri dancer and performance-maker Joel Bray (MTC 2023 MinterEllison Future Directors Initiative recipient, 3-time 2016 Melbourne Fringe Award recipient, inaugural Chunky Move Choreographer In Residence), I Liked It, BUT… ventures where very few experimental and immersive performance works dare to tread.
The cabaret-dance-trivia amalgam show will head to the Furphy Hall at Little Creatures Brewery in Geelong from Thursday May 11 to Saturday 13 May for multiple performances.

Migrating contemporary movement out of the theatre and into the local pub scene, Joel Bray embraces this unorthodox space to define what truly passes the “pub test”.
Served with tongue firmly in cheek, the show provides an opportunity for audience members from all walks of life to understand the ‘very artistic and very serious’ inner workings of the contemporary dance world. Leaning on his trademark humour, this show lightly nudges Joel’s lived experiences as a contemporary artist with unique intersectionality between the Songlines of his Indigenous heritage, skin colour and queer sexuality.

Grab a drink, enjoy a bite and take in tunes provided by a local musician; all while embarking on a trivial pursuit to decoding the wide world of performing arts.
Performances take place at 7:30pm each night from Thursday 11 – Saturday 13 May. Punters can also take part in the ultimate “Saturday session” with an additional 1pm performance on Saturday 13 May.
