The Lab


The Lab is the spiritual home of ILA, aptly named as it is a laboratory for creatives to explore and create and with new immersive technologies. Home to 50sqm of LED screens, The Lab is a community canvas that champions and empowers creativity, strengthening the cultural fabric of artistic communities.

Located on the ground floor of ILA, The Lab is a multi-functional, multi-genre immersive performance and events space with a curated program ensuring a full range of artists are able to experiment with ever-evolving technology and lead live performance in entirely new directions.

From bands to DJS, theatre to dance, The Lab has held over 500 performances, curated by our team with diversity, creativity and exciting new ideas prioritised above standing reputations. The Lab also facilitates experimentation, allowing artists time and access to play with new ideas and develop work, underwriting the risk of trying something new.

The Lab is available for events, providing an exciting and novel immersive canvas for organisations to engage with their clients, staff and customers. Profits are invested back in to support artists, innovation and ILA's self-sustaining vision.
