Wake-Up-Applespiel-Next-Wave-Festival-2012

WAKE UP: At The Request of Carl Sagan

Applespiel believe that Next Wave should commit itself to achieving the goal, before the festival is out, of sending someone to the stars and returning them safely to the earth. No single space project in this festival will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space-based theatre, and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.

Take a journey into the known and unknown.

Wake Up and Wait for the Sun to Rise Next Wave Festival 2012

Wake up and wait for the sun to rise…

500 methods for a new beginning

We’ve brought together 100 of Australia’s brightest young thinkers from all across the country to generate a brilliant mass of 500 methods, each imagining possibilities for a new beginning.

Now the methods are in the hands of 5 young and emerging artist collectives who will develop work that encourages us to imagine new possibilities for being together in the lead up to the Festival. The fruits of their labour will reside at our home base, Westspace. It’s an artist-led experiment so the outcomes are unknown but it’s fair to imagine parties, performances, dinners,  games, television broadcasts and much more!
