NSW Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, the Arts and Regional Youth, with Member for Albury, Justin Clancy MP, have come together to announce a $3.3M investment in an exciting new creative space for the Flying Fruit Fly Circus. The Borderville Studio Theatre will be an extension to the current building, carefully designed for the circus and equipped with state-of-the-art rigging, lighting, sound, projection and video systems.
‘The Flying Fruit Fly Circus extension is an important arts infrastructure project that will shape Albury as the premier destination for the development and presentation of contemporary circus works in NSW,’ the Minister said.
Justin Clancy said ‘This important investment will advance and innovate the arts in Albury while creating extraordinary circus works for audiences across NSW.’
The Borderville Studio Theatre will provide a space for artistic exploration and innovation with a clear purpose to support the development of new contemporary circus works.
It will be an important new learning space for our young artists, but also a national asset for the circus and physical theatre sector, with our combined facilities becoming a connected hub for innovation.
The construction of the Borderville Studio Theatre is a $3.9 million project, made possible by the announcement of a $3.3M investment from the NSW Creative Capital Fund. The other project partners are AlburyCity, Joss Construction and JWP Architects.
The project is due for completion by October 2023.
