Some people love footy… But some people really love footy.

White Line Fever, created by Perth-based artists Lyndon Blue and Matt Aitken (alongside numerous other local artists) explores the devotion, the agony and the ecstasy of footy fandom.

White Line Fever

Originally commissioned as part of the Melbourne-based arts organisation Next Wave‘s 2020 Festival, and now finally making its appearance in the west, White Line Fever imagines a (Denis) Pagan sect, characterised by the toss of the coin, the pigskin necromancer, the spell of the siren and the fire in the belly.

In short: magical, mystical footy rituals.

You can experience the immersive, experimental project as part of the Audible Edge Festival, co-presented by Tone List and Next Wave. This weekend for one night only, the auditorium of the Midland Junction Arts Centre will become a swirl of lights and the cacophonous sounds of training drills as you’re lead through the space by strange, cloaked figures.
