Electric Dreams is a celebration of immersive storytelling brought to Adelaide by Crossover Labs.

As a part of the Adelaide Fringe, the event is an eclectic collection of some of the world’s best virtual reality experiences, and a conference featuring leading international artists and creative technologists. It all takes place at Lot Fourteen and the Masonic Lodge from the 19th of 23rd of February 2020.

Among the twenty-five speakers taking to the stage over the three days, Monkeystack Director Justin Wight opened the conference with the first panel session along with Yellaka’s Karl “Winda” Telfer, Director of the Adelaide Fringe Heather Croall, and Nell Kirsten from Novatech. The team presented a behind the scenes look at world-building and co-producing the Fringe 2020 Signature Project, Yabarra – Dreaming in Light.

Other presentations on the program are from innovators like Weta Workshop’s Greg Broadmore, Ubisoft’s Hinde Daoui, Katrina Sedgwick from ACMI, Kristin Alford from MOD. and Ana Kaleidoscope. Audiences can enjoy some seriously thought-provoking presentations about the future of storytelling.

Monday’s conference program ended with a trip through Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute to view Yabarra – Dreaming in Light, with Justin taking the conference-goers through the experience.

The Electric Dreams conference which ends on the 21st is complemented with a VR cinema at the Masonic Lodge until the 23rd February. Get along and see the productions Gloomy Eyes and Fire Escape.

We hope that Electric Dreams will return for the Fringe 2021!
