Fresh from an extended sell-out season at the Edinburgh Fringe, and dubbed by one Scottish culturemag as ‘Glasgow’s Live Art supergroup’, interdisciplinary duo Fish & Game make their Melbourne debut with a work that straddles forms and invites a completely new view of the world.

A filmic tour-for-one, Alma Mater fuses high-technology with lo-fi charm as individual audience members enter a specially constructed, full-scale child’s bedroom to immerse themselves – via iPad – in the world of a little girl. With an original score by John De Simone performed by experimental octet Ensemble Thing, and cinematography from award-winning artist Anna Chaney, Alma Mater weaves a complex, handheld fairytale for the 21st century – a haunting meditation on family, familiarity and growing-up..
