Live digital theatre festival returns to the Isabel this June


The Festival Of Live Digital Art (foldA) will be returning to the The Isabel Bader Centre for Performing Arts from Wednesday, June 12 to Saturday, June 15, 2019. The four-day festival will be showcasing and exploring emerging digital performance techniques.

Festival goers can attend headlining immersive performances such as Choir!Choir!Choir!, a Canadian musical choir that invites the audience to be part of the sing-a-long, or MINE, a performance inspired by MINECRAFT that recognizes the role technology plays in our modern parent-child relationships. Attendees will also have the opportunity to beta-test performances and join workshops on the latest technology topics in theatre.

A longtime leader in the Kingston theatre community, Co-Programmer Sarah Garton Stanley recognized a need for foldA “to open a conversation about the future of liveness, loneliness and the human condition as told through the evolving digital platforms.”

FoldA is expected to attract theatre professionals and art enthusiasts from not only Kingston, but from all over Canada and the world.

“FoldA is bringing rare, nationally recognized artists to Kingston,” said artistic director Michael Wheeler. “These artists are stepping outside the theatre box and trying new things.”

Local theatre-goers will want to attend foldA so that “they can be a part of work that will delight, ignite and include them,” according to Stanley. “Kingston is a city that believes in innovation, yet loves good old human connections shared with others.”
