This event is part of the 2020 / 2021 Melbourne Music Week Ex-Tended.

Join Melbourne artists Mara Schwerdtfeger + Shelly Senbei + IJALE + Hachiku + The Opals at MPavilion as they perform original music created in response to a selection of Melbourne’s heritage sites.

This special event is a partnership between MPavilion, Open House Melbourne and MMW and brings together five Melbourne artists commissioned for a two-part project. Part one saw the artists respond to and perform in a selection of heritage locations in Melbourne (dressed in bespoke garments from RMIT Bachelor of Fashion (Design) students). The performances are available to view on the Open House Melbourne website. The selected sites are quintessentially Melbourne: the Alba Museum, the Old Council Chambers (Trades Hall), the Australian Tapestry Workshop, Como House & Garden and Solidarity Hall (Trades Hall).

Part two of the project takes the form of an epic show at MPavilion where artists will perform their original works live.
