Castlemaine State Festival Launches
THE JOURNEY TO THE FUTURE OF THINGS PAST
This year’s hugely anticipated Castlemaine State Festival—Victoria’s premiere regional arts festival—will blast off on Friday 17 March. Departing from Castlemaine’s abandoned transport hub, the Castlemaine Goods Shed, festival-goers will journey to The Future of Things Past.
The Future of Things Past, as the name suggests, is a story that draws on the history of the town’s working and social life to envision a future explored through the imagination and aspirations of the young people in this town.
Acrobats, dancers, robots, beatboxers, brass bands and circus performers will give opening night audiences a taste of just some of the outstanding international artists who will perform at the Castlemaine Goods Shed over the next ten days, as part of “Circocentric,” the festival’s physical theatre and circus program.
THE FUTURE OF THINGS PAST – PUBLIC OPENING
Friday 17 March at 7.30pm – 10.00pm
Castlemaine Goods Shed, Kennedy Street, Castlemaine
