Arts Centre Melbourne has launched a powerful new storytelling campaign showcasing the importance of the performing arts to Victorians as it looks towards a future reopening.
Together Experiences, an emotive series of short films created pre-COVID by Melbourne-based agency, Brands to life® shines a light on the unique and positive impact of the performing arts on the state’s diverse community.
The first three films focus on three individuals whose lives have been significantly impacted by the performing arts and Arts Centre Melbourne.
Choreographer Stephanie Lake discusses the creation of her large-scale work Colossus, an Arts Centre Melbourne commission and a lifelong dream to create a work exploring the complex unison and wild individuality of humans.
Lauren Hayes, who was born blind, explains how audio description makes her theatre experience complete while Thomas Smith talks about Arts Centre Melbourne’s Tech Connect Regional Training Program which allowed him to pursue his dream of working in theatre from his home in Swan Hill.
The Together Experiences film series will be shared over nine weeks and lead into the time when Arts Centre Melbourne can begin welcoming artists back to its stages and audiences to its venues. The films will be shown through a digital media campaign as well as on Arts Centre Melbourne’s website and venue’s digital screens.
