Lyndon Blue & Matt Aitken

White Line Fever: Pigskin Toxic Energy Purge
Closed Captions

Footy is dead – hark, necromancers of thee pigskin! We call upon footy’s spirits in the underworld. But in reviving the great game, what do we carry into the future, and what do we cast off into the fire? BYO sacred footy objects, cursed artifacts, and sacrificial pyre (where possible). We will roar, we will travel within, we will look White Line Fever in the eye and purge what does not serve us from the heart of the pigskin.

This event was previously listed as offering Auslan Interpreting, however it will now be AI Captioned.

Please note: this session discusses toxic behaviour in the Australian footy world, including mentions of racism, violence and sexual assault.

Their work, White Line Fever was set to premier at Next Wave Festival 2020.
