Communikey Festival 2011 embraces structure and chaos in its complexity, and honoring the liminal, the space where festival came to be. There is a tension and release in these liminal spaces, which is where we will play with this year’s programming, exploring time, space and the limitless potential of what can be, in the space in between. Exploring the spontaneous and the unexpected, this year’s theme holds space to a series of secret passages, occurring within and without the overarching events, reclaiming the idea of festival.
