Supersense is a contemporary performing arts festival exploring plains of ecstatic experience.

Created and presented by Arts Centre Melbourne in association with peripatetic 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.
