Dark Mofo. A Resurrection.
Dark Mofo has long been influenced and inspired by the Dionysian energies of chaos, wild nature, theatre, ritual madness and religious ecstasy.
For the ancient Greeks the God Dionysus was a symbol of inexhaustible life, ever flowing and renewing through the cycles of birth, death and rebirth. He reveals an intoxicating insight into the reality of what is happening everywhere, and all of the time. Nature is constantly moving toward death, and resurrection.
As the world re-emerges from the Covid lockdowns, we are all experiencing a rebirth of sorts. The forced isolation gave rise to a re-evaluation of what matters, to new ideas, new dreams.
This year’s festival is a celebration of coming together, again.
