This September, the festival will be a playground for possibility. We want to run ourselves ragged, chasing after your big ideas until the sun comes up. Let's spin stories, catch the undercurrent, hop the fence, edge our chalk on the ground. Let’s see-saw together on the edge of the future.
We’re living in superflux, a rushing spiral of chance and change. Listen closely. It’s an abundance, an overspill, an endless surging flow of possibility. The floor is pulsing, futures are unfurling, we’ve never felt this way before. Give in to the pull. Held between stillness and chaos, the next is out of reach and all there is is now. We need artists to stand in the centre of the spin and sing.
In your visions, we find an equilibrium, a space between the beloved and the undiscovered. Here, we can repair, prepare and play. Reality is flexing on us. Risk taking is required to find a new direction. It’s the perfect moment for new voices and new artists to cut through the noise. Introduce yourself, we want to hear from you. We’re ready to listen.
Shift our paradigm behind the bikesheds. Share your strange encounters and your most revelatory discoveries. Embrace the unreality – languish in the awkward and revel in the surreal. We want to disagree, to have juicy conversations that keep us up at night, to feel the sting of recognition for a place we’ve never been.
Steep us in joy. Embolden us with wonder and let comedy eat the darkness. Take silliness seriously, treat mess as mandatory and pleasure as a principle. Set up a peep-show in our kitchen, open trapdoors in our floorboards, ask us to dance. Bring back the thrill of happenstance, the ripple of shared laughter, the grip of anticipation before the drop. We can’t wait to lose control – and there’s no one we’d rather get lost with than you.
