Saturday 16 August 3pm-11pm
Sunday 17 August 11am-5.30pm
Presented by Museum of Old and New Art and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.
Submerge yourself in MONA – your reverberating, subterranean private playground.
The journey begins with a special commission by Matthew Hindson, featuring 50 TSO musicians spread across the whole museum. This sets the tone of the weekend: your thorough immersion in Mona and the music, and the saturation of your senses. Stupendous feasts and drinks included. Museum closed to all but Synaesthesia + patrons. Come and play.
