Temperance Hall is a stunning and vital arts hub in Melbourne, supporting experimental and risk-taking contemporary culture.
In the heart of South Melbourne, Temperance Hall is a unique artist-led interdisciplinary complex, comprising a main hall, studios and residential apartment.
Our late 19th century building, built by the Emerald Hill Total Abstinence Society, has a rich social and political history. The spaces retain this charm in newly renovated multi-purpose spaces where Phillip Adams, along with a plethora of independent artists and other small companies, push their practices and make bold new work. Temperance Hall is a place to develop new and experimental work in a supportive context.
Phillip Adams BalletLab
Company in residence Phillip Adams BalletLab curate, collaborate and program the space.
THE MAIN HALL IS AVAILABLE FOR THEATRE AND DANCE REHEARSALS, CREATIVE DEVELOPMENTS, CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITIONS AND WORKSHOPS; SEMINARS, CONFERENCES, FUNDRAISERS AND FORUMS, WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL EVENTS.
An open plan, high ceiling room with a small theatrical stage opposite the main entrance, the Main Hall is available for hire at very reasonable rates. It's stage is framed by a simple proscenium arch. Phillip Adams BalletLab is committed to supporting artists and our community and offers discounts for performing arts projects and not-for-profits, and for unfunded art projects.
Temperance Hall is located just off Clarendon Street in the vibrant heart of South Melbourne. It is well-served by public transport and has 2-hour weekday and unlimited weekend on-street parking. The ground-floor Main Hall has wheelchair access and an accessible toilet and shower.
"High ceilings, wide floorboards and lofty windows give this paean to sobriety a giddy sense of grandeur."- Open House Melbourne.
