Glitch: A playground of the apocalypse is not for the faint of heart. But it’s bound to strike a chord because it touches upon a universal experience that the world continues to grapple with. Presented by Tortuga Studios in association with Inner West Council’s EDGE program, Glitch is a multidisciplinary and immersive alfresco event with something for everyone. Bringing together leading industrial and multimedia artists it is a playful yet eye-opening commentary on the impact of COVID specifically on the arts community, gentrification and the loss of industrial space.
Glitch: A playground of the apocalypse
If the name itself wasn’t intriguing enough its stacked program is bound to pique your interest. At the multimedia event you’ll find large installations, kinetic sculptural works, warped sounds and fractured lights for a true interactive experience. Other immersive elements include a steel crankshaft carousel by Dillon MacEwan and a steel skeletal tree with hanging ‘fruit’ in the form of burning logs courtesy of film and TV construction specialists Alien Proof Construction.
The project also touches upon the urgency for industrial land for cultural production and artistic fabrication close to the city.
Expect hypnotic performances from Circusworks, Beeswax and Bottlecaps, Marlena Dali and more and live music from Christa Hughes and Subway Monk among others.
