Airport comes alive with quirky theatre performance

April 18, 2019

A lively and colourful pop-up theatre performance has landed at Gold Coast Airport in time for the busy Easter travel period.

Performers from Bleach* the Gold Coast Festival, through a partnership with Gold Coast Airport, are once again giving passengers a taste of the festival program in the terminal.

This year a show for children, The Collectors, will play out in the terminal – one of the first events on the festival’s 11-day calendar.

It follows the success of the inaugural Bleach* performance at Gold Coast Airport – The Welcome Party – which was delivered during the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Gold Coast Airport Chief Operating Officer Marion Charlton said The Collectors was part of the airport’s increased focus on activating partnerships within the airport.

“Bringing a pop-up version of these events into the terminal gives passengers a taste of some of the city’s premier cultural showcases as soon as they step off the plane,” she said.

“It also provides a way for us to meaningfully show the partnerships we have with events on the Gold Coast, including Bleach*, SWELL, Blues on Broadbeach and Cooly Rocks On.”

The Collectors features two performers roaming through the airport, playing the characters of Sprig and Magnolia, who have travelled from the village of Littleleaf with their case of curiosities.

The performance will run this Thursday and Friday at Gold Coast Airport, delighting passengers traveling to and from the city for the Easter break.

Gold Coast Airport’s parent company, Queensland Airports Limited, supports more than 70 community, business, environment and tourism initiatives across Queensland and northern New South Wales each year.
