What would Geelong’s landmarks have to say, if they could talk? Creative Geelong, in partnership with Barking Spider Visual Theatre, have answered the question and invite you to discover the answers when their Arts Industry Commission project, The Object Monologues Geelong launches online 7:00pm Friday 16 July. From Eastern Beach to Geelong Train Station, six sites were chosen by the community, identifying objects that have a thing or two to say about Geelong. The fountain at Eastern Beach (voiced by Gretel Sharp); a horse on the Carousel (voiced by Angie Hilton); the Cartway Door at the back of the National Wool Museum (Gore Place, voiced by Jane Bayly; a lion at City Hall (voiced by Benji Groenewegen); the Rotunda in Johnstone Park (voiced by Tom Molyneux) and the Walk Bridge at Geelong Station (voiced by Tom Halls) feature in this delightful homage to our City. The project will be delivered to you via the ECHOES interactive sound walks app, free to download. The Object Monologues is a free, geo-located audio experience, where the personality, idiosyncrasies and passions of six Geelong landmarks are brought to life through the wonders of the modern world.
