Created and presented by Arts Centre Melbourne in association with curator and performer Sophia Brous, Supersense presents a 3-day durational ‘festival-as-theatre’ where an immersive labyrinth of Arts Centre Melbourne’s underground walkways, venues and performance spaces is transformed, creating an experience of wonder, excitement, curiosity and entranced surrender.
Supersense is on 18-20th of August 2017 at the Arts Centre Melbourne.
