hillsceneLIVE 3

Friday 5 December | 6:00pm – 9.30pm | Mt Burnett Observatory, 420 Paternoster Road, Mt Burnett

Imagine watching films in trees, descending a stairwell into an intimate theatrical encounter, immersing yourself in performance installations, hearing poetry in an observatory dome, or even listening as local astronomy buffs guide you through the solar system.

Incredible art, inspiring performance, summer-time food and a licensed bar

hillsceneLIVE 3 extends our passion for unusual spaces. This event will be held at the Mt Burnett Observatory, a unique venue comprising small theatrette, outdoor spaces, a giant telescope, hidden nooks, and more! Mt Burnett have generously offered the use of their telescopes for this event: a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with 100 billion stars.

hillsceneLIVE supports the ambitious, the bold, the risky and the brave. Come along on a fanciful journey of live art and performance: be bewildered, inspired and rejuvenated by some of the Dandenong Ranges’ most talented artists.
