If you find yourself down under at the end of August, you should probably hightail it to the beautifully curated SUPERSENSE Festival in Melbourne. Among other treats, they are offering a Sunday afternoon double bill of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and Australia’s own conjurers, The Necks. “Never to be repeated,” they say. Is that a challenge?
