VIA ALICE

RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY PRESENTS

VIA ALICE

Worldwide premiere of a uniquely Australian journey through virtual reality & live performance.

KHALIF DIOUF (LE1F)
WAANGENGA BLANCO

Music by

DANIEL STRICKER
JOHN CARROLL KIRBY

VIA ALICE follows hosts, American rapper and producer Khalif Diouf (Le1f) & Indigenous Australian dancer and choreographer Waangenga Blanco, as they take people on a surreal, immersive and insightful journey from New York City, into the vast Australian outback, Alice Springs, and onward into the upper northern reaches of the Cape York Peninsular.

With diverse backgrounds in dance and performance, knowledge passed down from community elders, and unique approaches to storytelling – the two collaborators take viewers on a desert journey into Aboriginal culture. Through artistic collaboration, at the meeting point between storytelling and dance, communities’ ‘songlines’ are told.

Khalif and Waangenga, in conjunction with producers Daniel Stricker (Midnight Juggernauts, Mind Gamers, Kirin J Callinan), and John Kirby (Mind Gamers, Blood Orange, Sebastian Tellier), will simultaneously collaborate with Indigenous communities in urban and regional centres on an original music composition to accompany this progressive visual journey.

This exclusive performance will run across four evenings, accompanied by a free virtual reality experience enabled by Samsung Gear VR, open to the public for the festival’s duration.
