Dark Mofo – students immersed in an award winning festival
Tasmania’s 2015 Mofo and Dark Mofo festivals were awarded one of the most coveted awards in the Australian performing arts industry – the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Group Award. Judges stated that the festivals “have captured the imagination of popular and critical acclaim”.
University of Tasmania students were right in the thick of it, capitalising on the incredible opportunities presented by Dark Mofo. Our theatre students performed in a Marina Abramovic exhibition; Architecture students built a magnificent venue on Salamanca lawns; Fine Art students installed works for a major exhibition; and students and lecturers produced their own installations that lit up the 2015 festival.
