If you're partial to the kind of feast that tickles all of your senses at once, you'll want to make a date with Moonhouse this month. On Wednesday, September 21, the Balaclava restaurant is teaming up with experiential theatre crew Nonchalant to deliver a one-off dinner fusing food and drinks with a tantalising curation of art and live performance.

You'll enjoy a cocktail on arrival, before diving into a four-course spread starring plates like Sichuan-spiced steak tartare, crispy skin chicken matched with lemon pepper and Moonhouse's sweet chilli, and a coconut soy pudding with mandarin.

Meanwhile, you'll find yourself simultaneously soaking up striking projections by visual artist Jem Bray, grooving to sounds from DJs Hans DC and Sasha Fern, and delighting in the hosting talents of Danny 'BamBam' Carter. Even more entertainment comes in the form of live tunes from the likes of singer-songwriter Lakyn, cello star Wilma and vocalist Amber Ferraro, and performances by dancer Bianca Dimattina, and burlesque artists Gina Stirling and Evana De Lune.

If you fancy commemorating the occasion with some happy snaps, photographer Ray Rolla will be manning a pop-up photo studio from 7–8.30pm. Tickets to the experience clock in at $150, including food and all the evening's creative delights.
