IRL Festival

IRL Festival

This May, the Brisbane Powerhouse will be hosting the IRL Festival, a program exploring the convergence between live arts, and digital and gaming culture. The Edge has been asked to be involved and really, when you think about it how could The Edge not be involved?

As is the way with a lot of things The Edge does, we would love for you to be involved in the ideation, creation and collaboration of our involvement. To that end, let me introduce you to one of the two projects currently waiting for your cleverness.


In the beginning there was Player 1 and Player 2.  Defenders of humanity, anthromopghic representations, bricks playing tennis, hardened murder hobos and whimsical fey creatures.

Suppose these two characters were persistent, the same persona shunted from game to game, doomed to live a thousand lives in a thousand skins at our whim. What might their story be? Player 1/Player 2 is an interactive installation work exploring that story.

We’re looking for:

  • Visual designers to help us design the physical installation
  • Writers to collaborate on writing the scripted elements of the work, and
  • Generally clever individuals to help make the project happen

This is an awesome opportunity to create new work that will be exhibited in public as part of a major festival, and meet new people interested in the same things you are.

How to get involved:

For visual designers and generally clever people we will be having a session on Saturday 28th February here at The Edge from 2pm to 3:30pm. Concepts will be discussed,  labour volunteered and a fun time had by all. Bookings to this event can be made here.

For writers, we will be having a session on Saturday 28th February here at The Edge from 3:45 till 5pm. Concept will be discussed, as well as process and such. This will be largely an online process after this first meeting. Bookings to this event can be made here.

There will be other opportunities to get involved in this project; this is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor. If you have any questions, contact The Edge Creative Manager, Daniel Flood below.
