We are thrilled to announce that XMove is up and running at our first fixed installation venue in Australia. Just opened following a complete redevelopment, the Little Malop Street building has now been transformed to create the largest dedicated regional arts centre in Australia with a unique design that reflects Geelong’s history, culture and creativity.
Within this venue, The Story House, a multi-format 550-seat theatre, expanding to 850 in ‘live gig’ mode is a flexible space with versatile configurations and a fully automated fly system comprising 25 over-stage bars, 36 chain hoists running 9 lighting trusses and 2 orchestra pit lifts.
The Story House allows audiences to immerse themselves in new worlds, experience a sense of occasion and ensure the creation of exceptional and extraordinary experiences.
“We have worked with world leaders to design these spaces, pushing the boundaries of what theatre spaces will need now and what they can be for the future.” Geelong Arts Centre CEO and Creative Director, Joel McGuinness
The installation of the system was successfully completed without requiring our presence on site at all. However, it was a pleasure to make a visit recently in order to provide in-person training for the in-house crew on the live system and it was exciting to see XMove in operation for live public performances during the inaugural season at the venue. Everyone was impressed to learn how easy it is to get started and keen to further their knowledge and experience with XMove.
