VIA ALICE is a cross-cultural collaboration between American rapper and producer Khalif Diouf (Le1f) and indigenous Australian dancer and choreographer Waangenga Blanco. Collaborating with Pete Keen, multidisciplinary artist, creative director and founder of Melbourne's Sugar Mountain festival; and Daniel Stricker, head of Siberia Records, a producer, and founding member of Australian luminaries Midnight Juggernauts, VIA ALICE follows Khalif and Waangenga Blanco on an immersive journey from New York City into the vast Australian outback.

In conjunction with producers Daniel Stricker (Midnight Juggernauts, Mind Gamers, Kirin J Callinan), and John Kirby (Mind Gamers, Blood Orange, Sebastian Tellier), Khalif and Waangena will simultaneously collaborate with Indigenous communities in urban and regional centres on an original music composition to accompany this progressive visual journey. Informed via diverse performance backgrounds and passed down knowledge from community elders, the artistic collaboration takes viewers on a unique journey into Aboriginal culture. Through artistic collaboration, the meeting points between storytelling and dance - otherwise known within these communities as 'songlines - is told.

Taking place at Carriageworks this exhibition will run across four days with a free virtual reality experience enabled by Samsung Gear VR, open to the public for the festival's duration.
