GEOCON backs theatre production
18 July 2016
Construction and theatre have come together thanks to GEOCON’s support for of Canberra’s newest contemporary theatre productions.
The construction and property development firm has lent a hand to Aspen Island Theatre Company’s latest production The Slip Lane, which is a humorous political satire that offers a critique of modern Australian through the eyes of characters living in Canberra’s most northern urban precinct, Gungahlin.
GEOCON’s Managing Director Nick Georgalis received a backstage pass to a rehearsal of the show last week ahead of its official opening at the Street Theatre on Thursday, July 28.
“GEOCON is really pleased to be helping build the creative arts scene in Canberra by supporting the Aspen Island Theatre Company with its latest production,” Mr Georgalis said.
“Being set in Gungahlin, The Slip Lane backdrop is particularly relevant for us, having released the first stage of our Gungahlin high-rise apartment development Infinity Towers a couple of months ago.
“Our focus as developers is building precincts with amenities that bring communities together.
“We believe in the arts as an essential part of a vibrant and connected community and we are building a theatre in our new development at Section 200 in Belconnen, as well as being one of the selected tenderers for the revitalisation of the Kingston Arts Precinct.”
The Slip Lane will run from July 28 until July 31. For more information about the show, start times or to purchase tickets visit www.thestreet.org.au/shows/slip-lane
