The museum turns up the heat, “Love Island” style

If things weren’t already hot and scorching enough in the rainforest of Otago’s museums, they will be tonight.

The area will be transformed into “Casa Amor” for another After Dark student event – this one titled “Love Island”, which will be filled with love, romance and unnecessary drama around every corner.

Museum coordinator Charlie Buchan said After Dark events happen about three times a year and are popular with students, but this event seemed to be a lot bigger than they had anticipated.

“It’s very popular online. It’s gone a bit viral.

“We had a lot of students tagging their friends in Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland, so we expected some people to come down from those places.

“I think that’s the theme of the island of love it is done. It’s super popular with young people right now.”

Mr Buchan said they were encouraged to dress in their best outfits on the island and there would be dancing, challenges, entertainment, a DJ, confessional, fire pit, bar at cocktails and more.

“Dance among the butterflies, cool off with a tropical cocktail or duet at our famous karaoke at the planetarium to the island of love best hits,” he said.

“We will have challenges and activities of fact or fiction, to the island of love– science-themed experiments, and you can strike your most dramatic pose in our mirror photo booth.

“Bring someone along for a chat and grab some food from some of Dunedin’s best food trucks on the reserve,” he said.

The event was R18 and would run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight, he said.
