Geelong locals can discover a hidden world of dance in CBD laneways through the QR codes that are now part of everyday life.

The black and white boxes, now “COVID-normal” for employees and diners alike, reveal a series of short movement films showcasing Geelong’s artistic talent, colourful murals and breathtaking views.

Dancers glide across city rooftops or past laneway graffiti in the Micro Moves Project, created by producer Helen Duncan, director-choreographer Zoee Marsh and videographer Chris Bryan.

“It’s so great to be able to pick our creative tools back up again after a challenging 2020, and we would love your support as we get back into creating art in our city,” Duncan said.

“We’re delighted to share our creative work with our local community and we look forward to sharing this unique series of short films with you.”

CBD visitors can explore central Geelong through a different lens in five short films over a one-kilometre walk in the council-sponsored project, which runs until July 16.
