The Venue 

An inflatable, moveable art-space that will take the form of a giant crab shell 16m wide and 22m long. The exterior ‘shell’ is an artwork in its own right representing the land, water and sky.

The venue has the capacity for 156 people for staged performances and 200 people for concert or cinema configuration. A 20ft shipping container is integral to the design. It will contain both storage and plant equipment in one half and a multi- purpose space in the other half which can be used for a servery, kitchenette, bar or ticketing office.

The internal space will be enhanced by the Kangaroo Tales installation, comprised of five large sculptural forms covered in kangaroo skins and a large grass weaving. The kangaroo skins are embellished with intricate hot wire burnings of land and water based animals from GunaiKurnai country. Internationally recognised UK company Inflate have been engaged to build the state of the art inflatable shell.
