exhibition last night.
Entry is free but the recommendation for all intending visitors is to book ahead, especially those planning to attend at night.
Performance artist Mike Parr's presentation at Willow Court is getting mixed reactions but for many visitors the heritage buildings are the main attraction.
Parr is ensconced in the former A Ward/Alonnah House, where he is in the midst of a 72-hour performance titled Entry by Mirror Only. This exhibit will be open to visitors 24 hours a day until noon this Sunday. The cost of admission to the site during the performance is a mirror, of any kind, to be left behind. Parr will be drawing for the duration, or as much as possible, in complete silence.

There will be occasional street entertainment and food vans in the New Norfolk central business district until Sunday, June 19. Shops are being encouraged to offer specials and stay open later during this period and many have been decorated with red lights and mirrors in support of Dark MoFo. Many private homes have also adopted the same theme.
