A new immersive theatre program, Le Freak, is coming to The Art House in May. With numbers strictly limited, 250 guests a night will enter The Art House and take a step back in time to the roaring 20’s.

Part exploratory experience and part stage-show, small groups are guided through the venue, discovering the theatre’s hidden corners and corridors, and encountering incredible acrobatics, dance and performance pieces on a 1920s theme and in the most unlikely of places. Modelled on the successful immersive theatre, ‘Hidden Sydney’ and ‘Sleep No More’, and inspired by The Art House’s first birthday celebration in May 2017, where contortionists performed on the bar and acrobats swung from the rafters and walked on stilts above the crowds, Le Freak will expose Central Coast audiences to a type of theatre never yet seen on the Coast. After all the exertion of exploring the building, guests will take a breath, then take their seats for a show featuring performances from some of the Central Coast’s most versatile and talented dancers and acrobats. Coming up to their second birthday, The Art House is gaining a reputation as a venue not afraid to push the boundaries of creativity and versatility. Le Freak is The Art House’s first collaboration with Lee Academy and is directed by the nationally recognised choreographer. Mr Keith Hawley.
