The Street Theatre - next to the ANU, and across the road from the NAB building in yesterday's photo.
The theatre was purpose-built by the ACT government, and opened in 1994. The complex includes two theatres, meeting rooms and a cafe/bar, and operates as a venue for a variety of performance types, including music, drama, cabaret and dance. The larger theatre (Street1) can hold an audience of 247, while Street 2 is a more intimate space, with room for 65-80 people, depending on the audience set up.
The angled front entrance to the theatre was inspired by the 'desire line' (what I would call a 'goat track'!) created by people entering the university, and cutting across the corner of the then vacant black of land.
