Wakeless A/V Design

Interrupt Collective was invited to collaborate with 
Binge Culture Collective in creating a far from norm piece of 
interactive theatre; WAKELESS. The piece follows dream logic 
as a narrative structure, using the interactive audio 
and visual worlds created as playing grounds and platforms 
to sculpt the performance within.

"The AV design ... becomes more and more sophisticated and 
– abetted by McShane's lighting and Stephanie Cairns' music composition and sound design – 
transports us to different realms and ways of seeing with dream-like ease."
- John Smythe, 12 Nov 2011
