Jurassic Lounge: Australian Museum X Vivid Ideas
1 William Street
After three years at home making sourdough in slouchwear, Jurassic Lounge is back and holding out for the heroes!
Peel off those trackies and get your cape back from your neighbour because the Australian Museum’s iconic after-hours party is returning bigger than ever, and this time …YOU ARE THE HERO. (Well, you’re dressed like one). You’re Ash Barty, you’re a front-line worker, you’re an Avenger, you’re Lady Whistledown, you’re the cast of Squid Game, you’re Elsa of Arendelle, you’re the legend on a scooter, in the rain, with a delivery of deliciousness for a stranger.
Jurassic Lounge will see heroes entertained in the Museum’s galleries and hidden spaces, which will be crawling with DJs, artists, scientists and dancers. There’ll be performances by some of Sydney’s most fabulous drag queens, a mutant barnyard, and an autopsy of a T. rex conducted by leading scientists from Improv Theatre Sydney. There’ll be face-painting, dancing, side-show antics, immersive experiences, performances, a pop-up bar and the chance to explore the blockbuster exhibition, Jurassic World by Brickman®.
The Bat-Signal is calling you to the Australian Museum. Will you heed it? And more importantly, is Cat Woman joining you?
