Justin Shoulder x CORIN x Tristan Jalleh [AUS]

VIA ALICE feat. Waangenga Blanco [AUS] x Khalif Diouf [USA]
VIA ALICE - Featuring dancer/choreographer Waangenga Blanco (Bangarra Dance Theatre), and New York artist/producer/performer Khalif Diouf (otherwise known as Le1f) - A moving meeting of two worlds, part virtual reality film, part live audio/dance performance.
Dancer and choreographer Amrita Hepi teamed up with Pasefika Victoria Choir to deliver a contemporary Waiata, celebrating cultural resistance.
Performance, sculpture, video and production genius Justin Shoulder met with classically trained electronic artist CORIN, and digital video artist Tristan Jalleh (who has created videos for the likes of SIA, Oscar Key Sung, and more) in a horror-filled, live performance.
Painter/sculptor/artist Hiroyasu Tsuri, aka TWOONE [JPN] joined artist, friend and collaborator Jun Inoue [JPN] in a physically performative artistic exchange.
First appearing as part of the opening act of Sugar Mountain 2011, songwriter Marcus Whale (also of Collarbones) returned with new music, a collection of live drummers and brass players, and went head-to-head with the multi-disciplinary artist and rising talent Athena Thebus in an awe-inspiring, collaborative performance, entitled LUCIFER II.
