After watching their Australian and European album launch tours evaporate due to the plague, ethereal electro-medieval band Dandelion Wine step back on to the stage in a big way with an epic multimedia performance accompanied by dazzling visuals rendered large on the Alex Theatre's array of LED Volume screens, with special guest Plum Green.
As well as featuring a live audience of actual humans in the theatre, the performance will be simultaneously livestreamed to Germany's DarkStream Festival.
On Saturday April 10th Dandelion Wine will bring their hybrid of ancient instruments, swirling guitars, electronic beats and ethereal female vocals to St Kilda's Alex Theatre in a performance that is only be made possible by the virtue of the Alex's embrace of cutting edge LED Volume technology. Originally developed for use in the film industry, LED Volumes use large scale LED screens to display effective three dimensional CGI environments with extraordinary depth and (sur)realism. This technology was most famously used in the creation of the Mandalorian series and was recently used by Dandelion Wine to film their forthcoming video "Too Late She Cried" (directed by Harry Potter and the Cursed Child director Naomi Edwards). Now the band will be inviting a live audience in to see them perform in environments created by artists Fyodor Krasniy and Josh Cameron, as well as visuals by filmmaker Simon Green and puppeteers Keira Lyons and Justine Warner.
