Zakide brings “Duality – Firestarter”, a multi-disciplinary arts incubator extravaganza facilitated by Clayton Windatt. The core concept of “Duality – Firestarter” is to represent barriers between worlds. Looking through to the other side can present something unimaginable or simply open your mind to alternate realities. This series of disruptive interventions explores space activating structural form without large environmental footprints. These interventions take shape as performance art activations, visual art installations, poetry, music and immersive arts experiences. “Duality – Firestarter” is a major partnership between Zakide and  ON THE EDGE Fringe Festival with presentation partners including but not limited to; Proscenium Club, WKP Kennedy Gallery and the Capitol Centre.
