Tank Arts Centre - Review

Recycled items are better put to better use than the parent materials they were made of. The Tank Arts Centre is the best testament of this statement. Three World War II oil storage tankers were put to creative use and renamed the Tank Arts Centre. Two of the main functionalities of the Arts Centre, to serve as creative hub and engage the local community have been more than beautifully met. There’s always some activity going on at the Centre. If it’s not an art exhibition, it’s a live performance or a food market….

Tank Arts Centre, Cairns Reviews

  • A fascinating venue and well presented. History meets utilisation, a recycling high point. WW2 fuel tanks that have been given a magical new lease of life.

  • Tanks great as always. Second time I have seen BS perform Julius Caesar. Totally different plays, actors, stage settings and choreography. Good and bad acting, some players superb. Can't lose really. Bravo. I liked the huge difference between the two. The first play I saw, Mark Antony's soliloquy was lost, his voice so soft the words were not audible and his setting cast to the rear of the stage. This version highlighted MA's (woman) scenes and the actor was superb. Brutus, Cassius, Mark Antony and Octavius carried the show along with a troupe of extras that played multiple roles. Staging brilliant as is every B.S. play along but choreography lacked somewhat in comparison to previous plays, i.e. Macbeth and previous Julius Caesar. Some of the casts voices could use work on projection as a lot of their words were lost angling left or right while engaging other players. Some acting needs working upon to get a real flow to match the body language with the dialogue. All in all pretty good but needs a bit more effort as depending on who held the stage the play experienced palpable engagement and disengagement with the audience. Looking forward to seeing more once the civic theatre opens and they have a professional sound stage and auditorium to work in.

  • Bella! So many amazing experiences. Wordless. Some things are beyond explanation.

  • Great venue for live music. Bar was well stocked and staffed and security were great. The sound was great and I loved the internal wooden pillars with artificial candles. Great touch!

  • Best Community Gallery in Australia. Validates the historical precepts of world peace it stands on, celebrates a unique and agressive tropical environment. What balance of life, living and future directions.
