LOCAL artists will be projected on to the big stage when they take part in this year’s Kaleidoscope Festival from November 1 to 4.

From Joondalup-based North Metro Tafe students, Lost and Found is a virtual animation that will transform the western facade of Lotteries House into an alternate world.

Hero kids will find themselves home alone dealing with a runaway space pet and an alien who has arrived to retrieve it.

Part optical illusion, part story and virtual puppet show, the installation is a combination of interactive lighting and surreal animation where loveable characters seem to run in and out of walls, float in space and travel to other dimensions.

Clarkson resident Jarrett Walton will Dance Like No One is Watching along with Matt Papa (Tap Dogs), Hilton Denis (Limbo) and Benson Jack Anthony (800 Words).

It features one male tap dancer, four glass walls, cool lighting, syncopation, flash tap, incredible rhythms and a broody sense of humour.

Joondalup Art Gallery will also be involved with exhibitions by local artists Chloe Tupper on the Thursday and Friday, and Corinne Gull on the Saturday and Sunday.

There will also be a rare showing of A Written Perspective by Benjamin Foster thanks to the City of Joondalup Collection providing the piece.
