In the Theatre, audiences can engage with Juxta Jam, co-produced by Felix Cross and Katrina Douglas. During a club-style happening special guest D/VJs - Marlene Cummins, Nardi Simpson and Isaiah Kennedy – will mix live sound and images created by 46 artists to create new narratives.

Juxta Jam is a multi-artform DJ/VJ-led event, where audiences discover how art reflects and stimulates emotions.

These works are part of a unique game site that allows audiences to overlay videos on soundtracks to create new narratives.
