Intel: Podcast Series - Episode 1

Topic: The Future is Now

Publishing date: Wednesday, 22 April 2020

Guest speakers: 

Join two of the world’s leading performing arts curators for reflections on the creation of Fusebox Festival 2020: Virtual Edition (April 24-26). 

Ron Berry from Fusebox Festival (Austin, Texas) invited Jeff Khan from Performance Space (Sydney) to collaborate on a program of work for his renowned annual arts festival. Three years of dialogue and exchange would culminate in a showcase of experimental works by Australian and Asia-Pacific artists in the upcoming festival in April 2020. However, due to the impacts of COVID-19, it became clear just one month out that an in-person, live version would not be possible. Would they cancel, postpone, or perhaps re-imagine and re-design a wholly new online version?
