Dumbworld wowed audiences at KAF 2021 with Carnival of Shadows: #1 Possible Human, their installation in the Abbey Quarter skatepark, and we’re excited to welcome them back to Kilkenny.
A New Topography of Love is an animated video game experience, played on a bespoke arcade console. Paying homage to 1970s video games like Pac-Man and Space Race, it leads players on a journey through destruction, rebirth, love and hope. Imagine Super Mario Brothers, Mario Lanza, Mickey Mouse, whales, bats, birds and Jeff Bezos all battling it out for the future of our very own Planet Earth!
Shot through with dark, satirical humour and accompanied by an original operatic soundtrack, A New Topography of Love encourages players to reflect on the issues we’re all facing in an amusing yet thoughtful way.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
Join John McIlduff and Brian Irvine – co-artistic directors of Dumbworld – in the Parade Tower on 19 August to discuss their latest project.
