Theatre director Gorkem Acarolglu and playwright Raimondo Cortese present one live work, every hour, for 24 hours

Experience 24 works of art over 24 hours in an interactive exhibition that'll take you all over Melbourne as part of the Festival of Live Art.

Each hour, on the hour, a new work will be presented at varying locations across the city, starting at Fed Square and taking you to the State Library, the Magistrates' Court and the Malthouse Theatre among other locations, including stops for food, drinks and perhaps a quiet spot for a sneaky cat nap.

Lead artists include actress Sapidah Kian (Rake, City Homicide); actor Greg Ulfan (Rush); artistic director at Barking Spider Visual Theatre, Penelope Bartlau; theatre director Susie Dee (Savages); Jonathan auf der Heide (director of Van Diemen's Land); actress Georgina Naidu; artistic director of triage live art collective, Katerina Kokkinos Kennedy; and producer/performer Sandra Fiona Long.

That’s a lot of hours to fill with art, so opt for the full shebang and get a fully-catered 24-hour ticket. Otherwise you can halve it for a 12-hour slot with snacks and meals, or simply pick and mix individual shows for your own liking...
