Image1

Description

Created in 2015 by Arts Centre Melbourne with Melbourne and New York-based inter-disciplinary performer and curator Sophia Brous, Supersense brings together a program of internationally revered artists and performers exploring contemporary and traditional perspectives on ecstatic experience across music, dance, film, visual art and design.

The festival features an extraordinary exclusive program of legendary international artists and music pioneers exploring the sublime and supernatural, including Spiritualized, The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda, Pussy Riot Theatre, the Master Musicians of Jajouka led by Bachir Attar, Blonde Redhead, Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O., EXO-TECH featuring Kimbra, Nazoranai, Sophia Brous' Lullaby Movement and Oliver Coates.

In 2017, the huge Supersense follow-up will be a confluence of ritual, expression and transformation, featuring over 14 Australian exclusives, 13 Australian premieres, four world premieres, five Supersense commissions and a myriad of first-time collaborations thanks to the return of Overground: A Festival Within a Festival.

Dive into three days of immersive, revelatory performance throughout the Arts Centre Melbourne's labyrinth of underground walkways, venues and performance spaces, with back-to-back performances from some of the world's most visionary artistic pioneers.
