Welcome to Jurassic Lounge. Art always finds a way
... "art, music, new ideas... every Tuesday... at dusk..." J
We went to the opening night last night and had a most fabulous time! Jurassic Lounge is an excellent concept... a marriage of past actions and new ideas, art and science and entertainment!
Every Tuesday night, from August 2nd to September 20th, the Australian Museum will open its doors and beckon us to be beguiled! To be nocturnal explorers... not just of their spectacular exhibitions and dinosaur skeletons and native animals and geological finds...but also to discover Sydney's hottest artists, performers and DJs!
Jurassic Lounge puts the Muse back in to Museum! Inspiring, fresh, exciting, witty, funky, cool, artistic, sexy and artistically sexy!
MORE WORDS & IMAGES AFTER JUMP!
What a stimulating way to spend a Tuesday evening...a deliciously chilled Moscato in hand, wondering from room to room, there's Karaoke on the top floor, DJs everywhere, interesting, interested people and as we all congregate in the Atrium to witness performances by human Birds of Paradise, (burlesque style!), it all feels ever so wicked! So... taboo... (in the theatre).
I was in love with the atmosphere! It was all just so...alive, everyone was smiling, even the hipsters (J), not a blase, jaded soul in sight... except maybe for the lone artist painting in the middle of, well, everything but maybe that was his artistic schtick...
The Lord Mayor gave her speech after a cheeky introduction by a well-known burlesque artiste wielding a whip and it was fine, just fine.
You can see a full schedule of what's happening each Tuesday on the site... something new every week so if you intend to go every week, best to buy the fabulous season ticket, the Jurassic Addict Winter Pass ($49) which is incredible bang for your buck! Otherwise it's $15 entry fee (includes one free drink and a copy of Time Out magazine) and you can buy tickets online or at the door.
