Dark Mofo

Concert or Performance Exhibition and Shows Festivals and Celebrations Food and Wine

8 Jun 2018 to 24 Jun 2018

Dark Mofo, Mona’s winter festival, delves into centuries-old winter solstice rituals, exploring the links between ancient and contemporary mythology, humans and nature, religious and secular traditions,darkness and light, and birth, death and renewal.
Dark Mofo runs June 15-24 across Hobart, on the wild island state of Tasmania, with major exhibitions at the Museum of Old and New Art (Mona) and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG), a public art playground at Dark Park, international musicians and artists performing around the city, at the historic Odeon Theatre, and home of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra, Federation Concert Hall.
It is a heady fortnight of festivities, and highlights for travellers often include the annual City of Hobart Dark Mofo Winter Feast on Hobart’s waterside docks, the ogoh-ogoh parade and burning on the solstice night, and the annual Nude Solstice Swim, where hundreds of brave souls plunge into the River Derwent at sunrise to welcome back the return of the light after the longest night.
Mona’s midwinter festival Dark Mofo is an annual pilgrimage south celebrating the dark through large-scale public art, food, film, music, light and noise.
