Alex Rocks

The Alex Theatre Project


The Alex Theatre is the home to a diverse array of performing arts groups and artists who are actively working towards a common goal, which was put into motion in 2015 by Aleksandar Vass OAM. St Kilda has been the original wellspring of rock music, creative arts, and film in Australia, however, over the last ten years the once great entertainment hub in Melbourne has been on the decline. Six years ago, the Alex Theatre project was set up and impacted positively on the stabilization of business activities at the top end of Fitzroy Street.

This is a 10-year project to develop operational guidelines to assist small performing arts venues to be self-sustaining. 

The Alex Theatre is an arts collective of creative;

  • Writers

  • Theatre Practitioners
  • Filmmakers
  • Story Tellers
  • Comic Artists
  • Dances
  • Online Creators
  • Musicians
  • Educators
  • Technologists
  • A Clown or Two

The Alex Theatre comprises the following six hireable venue spaces – 3 core spaces and 3 support spaces:

The venue also directly supports arts and innovative projects to stimulate cultural, social, and economic activity that assists our artists and the associated support people to engage and work creatively.
