Venue: The Capitol - RMIT

Melbourne, VIC, 3000Australia

Featuring: Catherine Ryan + R. P. Downie + Reuben Lewis + Tiffany Alwis

Four recent alumni of the 2021 MESS Professional Development course – Catherine Ryan, R. P. Downie, Reuben Lewis, and Tiffany Alwis – take to the stage of The Capitol – RMIT’s iconic theatre to perform an eclectic, genre-bending mix of live electronic music.

The scene will be set underneath a canopy of extraordinary lighting, designed by students from the RMIT Digital Media’s Heightened Multisensory Experience studio. They will be presenting audiovisual works composed especially for The Capitol – RMIT and its bespoke roof lighting system. From sublime to intense, by turn, the works create mesmerising, hypnogogic, exhilarating, brutal and overwhelming experiences.

Produced by Studio Leads Darrin Verhagen and Shaun Wilson, and Program Manager Ben Byrne

Strap in for a wild and psychedelic ride.
