Arts history

A peek into the basement of Melbourne's Arts Centre shows a Kylie Minogue stage costume taking pride of place among 300,000 objects culled from Australian performing arts' history.

Since its inception in 1976, the archive has become Australia's biggest performing arts collection. Staff have worked tirelessly to amass memorabilia from contemporary performers such as AC/DC, Nick Cave, Kylie Minogue and Split Enz, as well as a wealth of earlier material, including programs from the 1920s' Wirth Brothers Circus and the travelling magic shows of the 1940s.
