1000 Doors Ballarat

Lose yourself inside 1000 Doors Ballarat – a haunting maze of doors, gateways, portraits and screens.

POSTPONED: new dates will be confirmed in line with COVID restrictions.
If you have purchased a ticket you can transfer the booking, once new dates are confirmed, or request a refund using your Eventbrite account.

The labyrinth-like installation has been created by artists Christian Wagstaff and Keith Courtney, who were the masterminds behind the highly successful House of Mirrors, now located at MONA in Hobart.

1000 Doors will be located in Ballarat’s Armstrong Street South (between the Town Hall and Myer).

Tickets are $10 per person (under 5 and over 75 years free).

Within 1000 Doors‘ claustrophobic maze of memories, a seemingly endless series of doors, screens, portals and gateways give way to the many in-between spaces humanity has invented to fill the void – passageways, parlours, vestibules and holding pens –each haunted by the lingering traces of past inhabitants.

Every entrance into this house of possibility will begin at the same door, but no two visitors will leave the same as they entered.

1000 Doors sold out at the Melbourne International Arts Festival, the Brisbane Festival, and the Adelaide Fringe Festival.
