Friday 7th August - Sunday 9th August @ Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne
Supersense is a new festival exploring the ecstatic, extreme and sublime horizons of human experience.
For one weekend this August, Arts Centre Melbourne's stages, back rooms and hidden corners will be transformed into an immersive environment of rapture and collective transcendence.
Curated by musician Sophia Brous, in collaboration with the Asian Performing Arts Program, the festival foregrounds musical and artistic traditions exploring ecstatic experience and transformation from both at home and around the world - from the euphoria of Eastern trance ceremonies to the frenzies of modern punk, free jazz, seminal techno and stroboscopic projection.
