other art forms. Highlights include Monkeystack and Yellaka’s Yabarra: Dreaming in Light, an immersive work that uses projections, light and sound to allow you to walk into an Aboriginal Dreamtime story. Elsewhere, Industrial Light and Magic will show how the world of Star Wars is being brought to life using immersive technologies; Weta Gameshop, the Oscar- winning team behind Lord of the Rings, will survey how the future of games is playing against life-size 3D characters in your own living room; and The Royal Shakespeare Company, who have been collaborating with Andy Serkis’s The Imaginarium, will demonstrate their pioneering use of motion capture in live theatre. The Minister for Innovation and Skills David Pisoni, a major supporter of delivering Electric Dreams, said: ‘Emerging and immersive technologies are offering innovative ways for creative minds to connect with new audiences and we are thrilled to have the mix of
innovators, entrepreneurs, technology creators and digital pioneers here at Lot Fourteen for the Electric Dreams conference. It’s a great opportunity for South Australians to come together with the delegates and spark new collaborations into the future.’ If you’re looking to connect with the wider creative community while also fi nding ways to be inspired to formulate your own visions for the future, this is the event for you. Electric Dreams ultimately provides an opportunity for everyone – from artists and technologists to performers and curators – to keep on top of the creative and commercial opportunities of emerging technologies, encouraging conversation, debate and interaction along the way. n The virtual reality experiences are scheduled to run from Wed 19–Sun 23 Feb during Adelaide Fringe 2020 (Fri 14 Feb–Sun 15 Mar).
