DARK MOFO 2018 ANNOUNCES MAJOR NEW FESTIVAL EVENT

DARK MOFO 2018 – HOBART

DARK AND DANGEROUS THOUGHTS

LITERATURE, FILM AND IDEAS

Hobart’s midwinter festival Dark Mofo has recently announced a new program feature for next year’s June festival.

Dark and Dangerous Thoughts

(DDT) will comprise a curated showcase of literature, film and ideas that will take place during the festival.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of DDT program director Laura Kroetsch,” Dark Mofo Director Leigh Carmichael said.

“We’ll be asking her to draw on her wealth of experience as we program some of the more challenging and dangerous ideas being discussed in the twenty-first century. We’ll be looking at a broad range of issues, but it’s unlikely we’ll stray too far from the core themes of fucking and killing.”

In November, Adelaide Festival announced Laura Kroetsch’s departure from Adelaide Writers’ Week, where she had been director for the past seven years.

“In these dark times, we need to insist on freedom of expression,” Laura Kroetsch said. “I’m thrilled to be joining Dark Mofo, a festival that values independent thinking.”

The first Dark and Dangerous Thoughts program will be announced in April along with the full program.
