A world-first, communal augmented reality theatrical experience



A story for brave kids and adults alike, Alex: A play with holograms combines holographic projections with an all-ages narrative.

Presented at La Boite Theatre on 7 & 8 July 2023, Alex tells the story of Charlie, a young girl who must journey to the holo-world to rescue her father, who has been kidnapped by the evil and scary daemon, Alex.

With the help of riddle-solver and Chief-Pickler, Englebert Sparklepants, and their trusty best friend, Dylan the purple dog, Charlie must overcome her own internal demons and confront her greatest challenge.

Alex is the mainstream realisation of step-changing augmented reality technology hybridised with live performance - synchronously animated holograms performing alongside live actors. Alex fuses traditional theatre practice with augmented reality techniques invented specifically for the performance.

Based on research undertaken by digital performance experts at the Queensland University of Technology, in collaboration with IKONIX immersive experiences and supported by The Creative Sparks Fund, the Dr Don Bachelor Award and the Queensland University of Technology’s Design Lab, the play explores issues of identity and aims to promote positive social change amongst audiences.
