Auslan interpreters will feature at two events – the State Library’s Stories After Dark on Saturday 17 June, and the matinee performance of A Divine Comedy on Sunday 18 June.Viewing platforms and accessible seating will be a feature of Dark Mofo venues this year, including at MAC02, Federation Concert Hall, MyState Bank Arena, the Ogoh-Ogoh Burning, and The Odeon.
