An immersive virtual reality art work, Square Circles uses emerging digital storytelling to create a visual landscape which draws from William Barton’s country, culture and dreaming through the music of William along with long-time friend and collaborator violist Stephen King and the Australian String Quartet (ASQ).

Set to a score performed and recorded by Barton and the ASQ on Peramangk Country at Ukaria Cultural Centre, this stunning blend of music and visual artistry from Go Patterson Films and Jumpgate VR offers a rare fusion of culture and technology.

The work, directed by Barton and the ASQ’s Stephen King, will be presented in a pop-up ‘dome’ inside the Queen’s Theatre in Playhouse Lane in the Adelaide CBD, as part of the Illuminate Adelaide Festival.
